Roxbury man charged with Codman Square murder

The Boston Police Department reports arresting Oasis Pritchett, 22, on charges he fatally shot Alfonso Rivas in the head at 14 Lyndhurst St. in Dorchester on Oct. 17.

Pritchett, a Roxbury resident, was arrested Wednesday and is scheduled for arraignment in Dorchester District Court on charges of murder, armed robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Pritchett himself nearly died from a gunshot wound in 2009. The Brockton Enterprise reported at the time that he was shot in the chest and that officials say he likely was saved because he happened to stumble upon a fire alarm box.
