BROCKTON, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com/AP) – A 22-year-old Brockton man has been charged with the murder of another Brockton man who was fatally shot in a Belmont Street driveway Tuesday.
Donta Hood was taken into custody at a Dorchester residence on O'Callaghan Way at about 12 p.m. Thursday. He was arrested without incident.
Police responded to 227 Belmont St. at about 4:09 p.m. Tuesday. Upon arrival, they found 45-year-old Charles Evans lying in the driveway with apparent gunshot wounds to his chest area. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Hood was convicted of dealing cocaine in 2009 at a trial in which former state lab chemist Annie Dookhan testified about evidence.
Hood was arraigned Friday in Brockton District Court.
