By Globe Staff
Two 15-year-old boys are under arrest this morning, charged in connection with the killing of a 19-year-old man in the South End late last night, authorities said.
The shooting occurred shortly before midnight at the corner of Shawmut Avenue and Dwight Street. It was unclear how many times the victim was shot. Investigators would not comment on a motive.
A spokesman for the Suffolk District Attorney's office said Eloy Sierra is charged with murder and illegal possession of a firearm and is to be arraigned today in Boston Municipal Court.
The other teen will be charged as an accessory to the crime, said spokesman David Procopio.
