    Three Delaware men have been indicted on murder charges in the death of a Haverhill, Massachusetts, teen who was shot at his front door in June 2017, according to the Essex County District Attorney's office.

    Nicholas Mandato, 20, Thomas Warner, 21, and Kenneth Pitts, 19, are charged with murder in connection with the death of 18-year-old Bryce Finn on June 6. Additionally, Mandato and Warner face charges of armed assault with intent to rob.

    The suspects were indicted Thursday by an Essex County grand jury. All three defendants are held without bail, and their arraignments have yet to be scheduled.

    Finn's life was cut short when he answered a knock on the door and was shot in the chest just days after graduating from Haverhill High School.

    "He was just planning his future and then his future was just taken from him," Christina Mazzone, Finn's neighbor, said.

    A motive for the fatal shooting remains unclear.

    In a statement, Finn's mother told NBC10 Boston that her family was grateful to law enforcement officials following the arrest of the suspects.

    "What our family has gone through in the past year no family should ever be faced with," Meagan Finn said. "Our son Bryce brought happiness and love to so many lives and expected little in return. There are no words to accurately convey the amount of joy that was wrenched from our lives beginning that horrible night more than a year ago."
