FALMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - Authorities have charged a second person with murder in connection with a fatal, drug-related shooting in Bourne this week.

The Cape and Islands district attorney’s office announced that 20-year-old Amonty Amado of Wareham is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday on a murder charge in connection with the shooting Tuesday of Antone Gutierrez. It’s not clear of Amado has a lawyer.

Sonny Tavares was held without bail at his arraignment Wednesday on a murder charge stemming from Gutierrez’s death.

The 22-year-old Gutierrez, found lying in the middle of a road, died later at a hospital.

Prosecutors allege Gutierrez was shot during a heroin transaction.

The Cape Cod Times (https://bit.ly/1hP4moL ) reports that Tavares’ attorney said outside court that the victim’s violent and criminal past may play a role in his defense strategy.
