Boston homicide detectives have made a second arrest in the death of 17-year-old D’Andre King-Settles, who was shot and killed steps away from Boston police headquarters in December.
On Thursday, authorities apprehended Enrique Auch, 18, after issuing a warrant for his arrest. Boston police previously arrested and charged another suspect, Tsunami M. Ortiz, 20, in February.
The pair are thought to have shot King-Settles on Annunciation Road, in the playground of the courtyard of a housing development, behind police headquarters. King-Settles was from Roxbury.
“I’m proud of my detectives for compiling the evidence so quickly and efficiently,” Police Commissioner William Evans said in a statement. “Their diligence, along with the community’s assistance, played a huge part in solving this case. I hope that this second arrest can bring some closure to the family and friends of the victims.”
On Friday, Auch was charged with murder, assault and battery, unlawful possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm without a license, and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling in Roxbury district court.
