Two men charged in murder of 15 year-old boy last summer

Two men were arraigned this morning in connection to the shooting death of a 15-year-old boy on a Dorchester street last summer.

Curtis Ashford was fatally injured when a gunman— allegedly Zontre Mack, 19, of Canton— pulled up in a car and opened fire on a group people gathered on Ellington Street near Four Corners on the evening of July 27.

According to prosecutors, Boston Police located the car driven by 25-year-old Dominick Gavin and found DNA and fingerprints that matched to Mack.

Gavin, who has been charged with being an accessory after the fact of murder, was ordered held on $75,000 bail. Mack was ordered to be held without bail.

The arraignments came after a Suffolk grand jury returned indictments against the two men last week. They are due back in court on December 15.
