2nd arrest made in fatal drive-by shooting in Brockton

June 12, 2018

BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — Police have arrested a second man in connection with a fatal drive-by shooting in Brockton last week that authorities say stemmed from an ongoing dispute between two groups.

The Plymouth district attorney’s office announced that 22-year-old Christopher Nogueira, of Taunton, was arrested Monday in the shooting Friday of 21-year-old Anthony Baker Jr.

Nogueira is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on a murder charge.

Andrew Tymek was held without bail after pleading not guilty Monday to murder in Baker’s death. His attorney reserved the right to seek bail in the future.

Prosecutors say the 21-year-old Tymek was driving the SUV from which Nogueira fired four shots at about 6:15 p.m. Friday. Baker was struck twice in the upper body.

The shooting was the city’s seventh homicide of the year.
