Brockton Police


A second man has been arrested in connection with a shooting in Brockton. 

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office says 22-year-old that Christopher Nogueira of Taunton was arrested shortly before 6:30 p.m. Monday in connection with the shooting death of 21-year-old Anthony Baker. 

An investigation has determined Baker was walking along Arthur St. on Friday night when a dark vehicle approached him. 

Baker allegedly threw a rock at the windshield of the car before witnesses reported gunshots one of which struck Baker, fatally wounding him. 

Nogueira is accused of firing the shots while his alleged accomplice, 21-year-old Andrew Tymek of Brockton, drove the vehicle. 

Tymek was already arrested in connection with this incident. 

Nogueira is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Brockton District Court.
