DIGHTON, Mass. (AP) - An 18-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of another teenager inside a Massachusetts home.

Bristol District Attorney Thomas Quinn III says Joseph Medeiros, of Rehoboth, was arrested early Wednesday and charged with involuntary manslaughter, carrying an illegal firearm and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Quinn identified the victim of the shooting as 17-year-old Michael Pacheco, who was found shot inside a home in Dighton on Tuesday evening and later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Medeiros will be arraigned later Wednesday in Taunton District Court.

No further details were released.

The Dighton-Rehoboth Regional School District sent a notice to parents, students and staff saying that one of its students had fallen victim to violence and support staff would be available to help grieving students.
