Authorities have identified the man they believe pulled the trigger during a shooting last week in Lowell, Massachusetts, that left a 26-year-old dead.

Investigators have obtained an arrest warrant for 21-year-old Rafael Garcia-Rey, in connection with the shooting that happened Nov. 15 on Maitland Avenue at Chelmsford Street in Lowell, according to Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Lowell Police Superintendent Barry Golner.

Garcia-Rey allegedly shot Odogwu Ganobi, 26, of Lowell following a verbal altercation about a traffic dispute, according to authorities.

Garcia-Rey is approximately 5 feet, 7 inches tall with a slender build, and is known to have ties in both Lowell and Fall River.
