Two men charged in connection with death of Brockton man
Two men were charged after a Brockton man was found dead in his car Friday night, the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office said in a statement.
At approximately 5:19 p.m. Brockton police responded to 63 Perkins St. where they found a man slumped in the driver’s seat of a parked vehicle. The victim, who was identified as Lonnie Robinson, 36, had “an apparent gunshot wound” in his chest, the statement said.
Robinson was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
At about 5:15 p.m., Robinson and a male passenger parked their vehicle in the driveway of 63 Perkins St., according to the statement. Jerome Almonor, 24, of Brockton and Dominic Tassy, 28, also of Brockton, parked behind Robinson and the passenger, and entered the apartment building.
Almonor and Tassy soon exited the building, and “a verbal altercation ensued,” the statement said. Almonor removed a shotgun from his pants and shot Robinson in the chest before he and Tassy fled.
Almonor, was charged with murder, possession of a sawed-off shotgun, unlawful possession of ammunition and assault with a dangerous weapon, according to the statement. Tassy was charged with being an accessory after murder.
Both men will be arraigned Monday in Brockton District Court. No further information was released.Katherine Landergan can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
