2 Charged in Dorchester Shooting Death

Two teenagers were arrested Friday and charged with the January shooting death of another teen in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood.

Police say 17-year-old Chad O'Connor was shot and killed on Jan. 14 on Kenwood Street. Weeks later, they announced that Rishaard Sheppard and Branden Singleton, both 18 and of Dorchester, had been charged with murder.

Moises Pinet and his young daughter walked out of their apartment the night of the shooting, straight into a crime scene.

"We just see a body laying there with sheets over it," Pinet said.

The Suffolk County District Attorney's Office said the suspects would be arraigned Monday at Dorchester Municipal Court.
