WOBURN, Mass. — Authorities are investigating a deadly double shooting at a home in Woburn on Monday morning that left one man dead and another injured, authorities said.
Officers responding to a report of a disturbance at a home on Washington Street around 2:30 a.m. found two men suffering from gunshot wounds, according to the Woburn Police Department.
One of the victims, later identified as, Mussie Nirayo, 22 of Cambridge was pronounced dead at the scene. The second victim, identified as Tyler Olivier, 26 of Woburn, was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Olivier has been arrested and charged with possession of a firearm and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He is expected to be arraigned tomorrow in Woburn District Court.
Police noted that a preliminary investigation indicated that the two men were known to each other and that this was not a random act of violence.
A neighborhood resident told Boston 25 News that he spotted a suspicious vehicle parked on the street before police arrived.
“All of a sudden there were cruisers all over the place,” the man said.
State troopers assigned the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office are assisting Woburn police with the investigation.
