    A Massachusetts woman has been arrested in connection with Thursday's fatal shooting of a man in Lowell.

    The Middlesex District Attorney's Office and Lowell Police announced Friday that Graciela Paulino, 20, of Lowell, has been charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of Marc Devoe, 34, of Peabody.

    Police responded to the intersection of YMCA Drive and the exit driveway of the Gallagher Transportation Terminal at 12:39 p.m. Thursday where Devoe had crashed a Blue Hyundai Accent into a cement jersey barrier. Devoe was taken to Lowell General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

    A preliminary investigation suggests that Devoe and another man had been driving in the area when an altercation between them and Paulino occurred.
