Suspect in 2 Boston shooting deaths arrested in Georgia


(AP) — Authorities have arrested a suspect in the shooting deaths of two people in Boston.

A Boston Police Department news release says 20-year-old Nicholas Antoine was arrested Friday at a trailer park in Jonesboro, Georgia. U.S. Marshals and law enforcement in Georgia assisted with the arrest.

The department had released a wanted bulletin for Antoine in connection to the June 2018 killings of 26-year-old Wilfred Peters and 27-year-old Jeffrey Montaque.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene in the city’s Brighton neighborhood.

Antoine, of Boston, was arrested on a warrant for two counts of murder out of Suffolk County, Massachusetts.

A phone call to the county seeking Antoine’s legal counsel was not immediately returned.
