    A person of interest in the slaying of a restaurant delivery driver in Lynn, Massachusetts, is also wanted in connection to an armed robbery and aggravated rape in North Andover.

    The person of interest in the Lynn murder, 21-year-old Brian Brito of Manchester, New Hampshire, is being questioned, but has not been arrested for the murder, according to the Essex County district attorney’s office. North Andover police say Brito is also wanted for aggravated rape, kidnapping and armed robbery in connection to a convenience store robbery late Monday night.

    The shooting happened just before 6 p.m. Monday. Authorities in Lynn say police found 24-year-old Sina Zangiband dead in his car with several gunshot wounds. The Salem man worked as a delivery driver for Atha's Famous Roast Beef.

    Family and friends said police told them Zangiband may have been a victim of road rage.

    Friend Marven Abda said he met Zangiband delivering food for Atha's.

    "Every time he sees me he said he doesn’t have a brother he says 'I love you just like my brother' and tell him the same," said Abda. "I lost part of me basically. Not just a friend — part of me."

    Police found a vehicle on Route 1 southbound in Peabody matching the description of the one involved in the shooting Monday night.

    The driver, Brito, had an illegal loaded firearm and was driving with a revoked license. He also had a loaded magazine in the left cargo pocket of his sweatpants and a box with more ammunition in the right pocket.

    Brito was taken into custody and was arraigned on the gun and license charges Tuesday morning.

    North Andover police say that Brito also robbed a convenience store on Chickering Road just after 10 p.m. on Monday. Investigators say Brito ordered the store clerk at gunpoint to lock the doors and took her to a back room, where she was sexually assaulted. He then emptied the cash drawer and stole lottery tickets before fleeing.
