December 29, 2018

REVERE, Mass. (AP) — Police in Massachusetts have arrested a 24-year-old man in connection with the shooting of one man and the stabbing of another in Revere.

The Suffolk County District Attorney’s office says Hector Emilio Hernandez was apprehended Saturday and charged with attempted murder and unlawful possession of a firearm.

He’s expected to be arraigned Monday but it’s not immediately clear if he has a lawyer.

The two victims have not been identified and remain hospitalized in Boston.

A 27-year-old Chelsea man is being treated at Massachusetts General Hospital for multiple gunshot wounds while a 23-year-old Chelsea man is being treated at Beth Israel hospital for multiple stab wounds.

Prosecutors say the relationship between the men remains under investigation, as do the circumstances surrounding the incident, which happened before 1:45 a.m. on Saturday.
