JAMAICA PLAIN (CBS) – Boston Police arrested 26-year-old Uhmari Bufford and charged him in the death of Augusta Carter. Bufford allegedly fatally shot Carter last week in Jamaica Plain.

Carter, 45, was shot Wednesday night on Parker Street. Boston Police previously said Carter was the likely target in the shooting.

On Friday, police arrested Bufford on North Ave. in Brockton.

He is charged with murder, carrying a loaded firearm without a license, unlawful possession of ammunition and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building.

Bufford is being held without bail, something Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins said violent offenders should expect.

“You will not be let out up until your trial. It is a higher burden for the Commonwealth to have a 58-A hearing and then to ask for bail, we welcome that burden. You will be held until your trial date.
