• Brockton man arrested in city's 2nd homicide of the year


    Authorities say they have arrested a man in connection with a fatal shooting in Brockton.

    Massachusetts State Police detectives and Brockton police said in a statement Monday that 29-year-old Queito Miranda, of Brockton, was taken into custody Sunday afternoon in Worcester.

    Miranda is scheduled to be arraigned on a murder charge Tuesday in Brockton District Court. 

    The Plymouth County District Attorney's office says Miranda is suspected in Friday's shooting death of 32-year-old Earl Thomas, of New Bedford, who was gunned down in a parking lot. Thomas was taken by ambulance to Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, where he was pronounced dead.

    It was the city's second homicide of the year.
