Central falls man facing murder charge in shooting
A Central Falls man was arrested early this morning and faces murder charges for allegedly shooting another Central Falls man last month in a remote part of Foxboro.
Luis Lopez, 24, was arrested at his Cross Street address in Central Falls about 2:30 a.m. as a fugitive from justice, according to a news release from Norfolk County, Mass., District Attorney William R. Keating.
“The arrest warrant for the murder was issued after 10 p.m. last night," Keating said in the statement. “Luis Lopez was arrested without incident ... ."
Just after 1 a.m. on Oct 15, a driver in the Route 106 area of Foxboro spotted a body -- Carlos Gomez, 29, the news release said. Gomez was lying in the eastbound lane of Route 106.
State police detectives attached to Keating’s office and Foxboro police investigated.
Investigators said they used a search warrant at Lopez's residence. He may also be arraigned in Rhode Island on charges stemming from substances found in the search, along with the fugitive from justice warrant today, Keating said.
“If Mr. Lopez does not fight rendition to Massachusetts, he could be arraigned as soon as tomorrow morning in the Wrentham District Court,” Keating said in the statement. “If he does fight rendition, we will begin the process of obtaining a governor’s warrant to bring him back to face this murder charge.”
