Police charged Remy Salazar, 24, of Lawrence, with murder Saturday, after Massachusetts State Police tracked Salazar to Nashua, New Hampshire, and arrested him on unrelated outstanding warrants Friday afternoon.

“It appears that there was a party going on and something erupted at the party,” said Chief Joseph Solomon on Friday.

Salazar will appear in Nashua District Court on Monday morning on the outstanding warrants and fugitive from justice charge. It is not known when he will return to Massachusetts to face the murder charge.
