    After Brito allegedly killed Zangiband, police say he robbed a convenience store on Chickering Road where he ordered the store clerk at gunpoint to lock the doors and took her to a back room, where she was sexually assaulted.

    On Wednesday, family and friends of Zangiband turned out at a makeshift memorial at the spot where he was killed. Zangiband's father, Ali Zangiband, clutched a utility pole with his son's picture and wept.

    "This first time he met my son, just in car, killed him. Five times he shot him," he said referring to the alleged killer. "I want him to die. He’s killed my son."

    Zangiband's mother, Shahin Rezaeimogahdam, who couldn't even visit the murder scene, says Brito robbed her son of his future.

    "My son, he was my handsome son," she said sobbing. "How can I live without him? He was my baby."

    Brito will appear in Lynn District Court on Thursday.
