SALEM, Mass. (AP) - A New Hampshire man who police say fatally shot a delivery driver and raped a convenience store clerk before robbing the store has been indicted.

The Eagle-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2rYpHnJ ) that 21-year-old Brian Brito, of Manchester, New Hampshire, is charged with several offenses including first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated rape.

Police say Brito shot 24-year-old Mohammedreza Sina Zangiband after a road rage incident March 27 in Lynn. Authorities say later that day, Brito robbed a North Andover convenience store after forcing a clerk into a storeroom and sexually assaulting her.

State police arrested Brito later that night.

A not guilty plea was entered on Brito’s behalf after his arrest.

An arraignment in Salem Superior Court hasn’t been scheduled.
