BOSTON (AP) - Police have arrested a man in connection with a fatal weekend shooting in Boston.

A spokesman for the Suffolk district attorney says 29-year-old John Patterson, of Peabody, has been charged with murder.

His arrest comes after police responded to a shooting in the city’s neighborhood of Mattapan at about 10 a.m. Sunday.

Police arrived and found a man in his 20s suffering gunshot wounds. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim’s name has not been released.

Patterson’s arraignment is scheduled for Monday. It could not be determined if he has a lawyer.
