By Globe Staff
A 24-year-old Central Falls, R.I., man was arrested this morning in the shooting death of a man who was found last month on the road in a remote section of Foxborough.
Luis Lopez was arrested at his home at about 2:30 a.m. today. He is facing murder charges, the Norfolk County district attorney's office said in a statement.
The body of Carlos Gomez, 29, was found just after 1 a.m. on Oct. 15, lying on Route 106 in Foxborough near where the road passes under Interstate 95.
Prosecutors said the killing was the town's first since 1996.
Lopez is being held in Rhode Island. If he doesn't fight his return to Massachusetts, he could be arraigned as early as tomorrow morning in Wrentham District Court, District Attorney William R. Keating said in a statement.
