2 arrested in fatal playground shooting plead not guilty

August 27, 2019

LYNN, Mass. (AP) — Two men charged in connection with a fatal weekend shooting at a Massachusetts playground have pleaded not guilty.

The Lynn shooting at about 7:20 p.m. Saturday left 34-year-old Brandon Jesurum dead and three other people injured.

The Essex district attorney’s office says 43-year-old Rogelleo Morrison is charged with murder and 25-year-old Luis Falcon is charged with being an accessory after the fact of murder.

Prosecutors say a third suspect remains at-large.

The Daily Item reports that Morrison and Falcon were arraigned Monday and held without bail.

Morrison’s attorney, Mark Miliotis, says authorities have the wrong man and there is no evidence tying his client to the shooting.

Falcon’s attorney could not be reached.

The injured include an 18-year-old woman, a 20-year-old woman and a 49-year-old man whose dog was killed.
