21-Year-Old Arrested, Charged With Murder in Brockton Shooting

A Brockton man has been arrested for a local shooting death.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Andrew Tymek was arrested Saturday night in connection to the shooting death of Anthony Baker Jr. on Friday.

Officers responded to 10 Arthur St. Friday evening after receiving multiple 911 calls for a report of a shooting around 6:14 p.m.

Baker was pronounced dead at Good Samaritan Hospital after being gunned down in the drive-by shooting.

The Plymouth District Attorney's office says police believe this shooting was not random.

Tymek is charged with one count of murder and will appear in Brockton District Court Monday. An attorney for Tymek could not be immediately identified.
