The teenager facing charges for killing Irishman Ciaran Conneely and injuring two others in Boston last October has been named as 17-year-old John Graham.
The Boston Herald has reported that Graham appeared in court on Monday at the Suffolk Superior Court to face charges including first-degree murder for the shooting of the 36-year-old construction worker from Galway, Ciaran Conneely, on 10th October.
Graham is also being charged in relation to the non-fatal shooting of two other men on 30th October. Police said these shootings were the result of an attempted robbery.
The 17-year-old was arrested on 6th November. He is being held on $100,000 cash bail.
The Irish victim, known to his friends as “Kiwi”, was originally from the Aran Islands. During his funeral the congregation heard that he was a “God-fearing man, who had come to call Boston home” over the past decade.
He was returning to his Dorchester home from the annual Irish Heritage Festival in Adams Corneron 10th October, when he was shot.
