Boston Police arrested a Randolph man today and charged him with murder, alleging that he fatally shot 25-year-old Anthony Lewis early Thanksgiving morning.
Officers from the department’s fugitive apprehension and homicide units arrested 31-year-old Damien Smith at about 9 a.m. in Randolph, said Officer James Kenneally, a spokesman for the Boston Police Department.
Smith will be arraigned Monday morning at Dorchester District Court, said Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley. Police said Smith shot Lewis inside a Talbot Avenue apartment at 1:44 a.m. on Thursday. Lewis was taken to Boston Medical Center, where he died of his injuries.
Neither Wark nor Kenneally would speak about Smith’s motive in the alleged murder.
Today, a shrine of candles, flowers, and empty liquor bottles had been erected in Lewis’ memory outside the apartment where he was shot. Speaking through the front door intercom this afternoon, a woman said that no one inside wanted to speak to a reporter.
