Cristostomo Lopes, 20, and Joshua Fernandes, 16, were arraigned this morning in the Dorchester Division of the Boston Municipal Court in connection with the Sunday Murder of 14 year old Nicholas Fomby-Davis.
At their arraignment, Suffolk County prosecutors alleged that Lopes and Fernandes both jumped Fomby-Davis on Bowdoin Street as he rode his motor scooter. Once off the scooter, prosecutors allege that Lopes held Fomby-Davis while Fernandes fired 3 shots at him, one striking him in the chest.
Immediately following the shooting, a Boston Police Officer happened to be driving home and saw Lopes and Fernandes crouching between cars. The two were eventually apprehended after a chase by Boston Police Officers, and a .25 caliber gun believed to be the murder weapon was found underneath the car where Fernandes was allegedly seen kneeling beside.
Both Lopes and Fernandes were ordered held without bail on charges including Murder, and various Gun Charges. Fernandes, who is only 16, is going to be tried as an adult.
