QUINCY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A Quincy teen has been arrested in connection to the February 15 murder of Nathan Paul, a 17-year-old Weymouth High School student.
On Monday, 18-year-old Jaivon Harris of Quincy was arrested on charges of murder, armed robbery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and conspiracy, the Norfolk District Attorney's Office said in a statement to WBZ NewsRadio.
Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey said that Harris was set to be arraigned in Quincy District Court Monday afternoon.
Police obtained an arrest warrant for Harris out of Quincy District Court and were helped by the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section in efforts to locate him. But according to Morrissey, Harris arrived at Quincy District Court of his own volition, something that officials do not know if he did after learning of his arrest warrant.
According to officials, first responders found Paul in the Palmer Road area of Quincy after receiving reports of shots fired on Taffrail Road in the Germantown neighborhood of the city. Upon arrival, officers said Paul was in his vehicle suffering from an "obvious gunshot injury." Officers and responding ambulance personnel performed on-scene life-saving measures and transported Paul to Boston Medical Center for emergency treatment, Paul did not survive, officials said.
Morrissey said that the matter remains under investigation.
