BOURNE, Mass. (AP) - A Buzzards Bay man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a man found lying on a street in Bourne.

The Cape and Islands district attorney’s office said Tuesday that 25-year-old Sonny Tavares has been charged with murder, home invasion, assault and weapons violations in the death of 22-year-old Antone Gutierrez of Wareham.

It’s not immediately known if Tavares has a lawyer.

Prosecutors said Gutierrez was shot during an alleged heroin transaction with Tavares and others.

The Cape Cod Times reports police found Gutierrez on Trowbridge Road after getting a call from a passer-by at about 9:40 p.m. Monday. Gutierrez was pronounced dead three hours later at a hospital.

Bourne Police Lt. Richard Silvestro told the Times police are investigating a hotel room invasion nearby at about the same time.
