New Hampshire man arrested in connection with fatal Everett shooting

The suspect allegedly shot the victim twice following an altercation, authorities said.

A New Hampshire man has been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting outside of Karma Lounge in Everett early Saturday morning, according to authorities.

Charles Demos, 29, of Rochester, N.H. was arrested in Seabrook, N.H. on a fugitive from justice warrant by the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section. A warrant for Demos charged him with murder and unlawful possession of a firearm, a press release from the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office said.

The victim, 42-year-old Jarrod Harris, of Everett, was said to be leaving Karma Lounge, a hookah bar on Ferry Street, with a woman when a fight broke out involving the couple, Demos, and “several” others, according to the release.

“During the altercation Demos allegedly went to a vehicle that was parked nearby and obtained a firearm,” the release said. “Demos allegedly pursued Harris, firing the gun multiple times and striking Harris twice.”


Those on scene attempted to stop the incident before the shooting happened, and also attempted to help Harris. Harris was brought to Massachusetts General Hospital and pronounced dead, according to the release.

Demos allegedly fled the scene in a Volkswagen Passat, authorities said. He was identified as the alleged shooter by law enforcement. When he was arrested in Seabrook, Joshua Demos, 35, the resident of the home, was also arrested on an unrelated federal probation violation.

Charles Demos was set to be arraigned in Rockingham District Court on Monday on the fugitive charge. For the Massachusetts warrant, an arraignment has not yet been set for Malden District Court, according to the release.
