A Nantucket resident identified as Tevin Herman, 31, was arrested on the island Thursday in connection with a double shooting in Dorchester two months ago that left a woman dead and another person injured.
Boston Police Department homicide detectives, along with members of the Boston Police Department’s fugitive unit and members of the Massachusetts State Police’s Violent Fugitive Apprehension unit, converged on a residence located at the corner of Nobadeer Farm Road and Hanabea Lane around 7:30 a.m. Thursday morning to make the arrest. The Nantucket Police Department and local Massachusetts State Police Troopers played a support role during the operation.
Nantucket Police Department Lt. Angus MacVicar confirmed that the suspect was arrested without incident. The Boston Police Department identified the man as Herman in a press release Thursday afternoon. They added that Herman was wanted on warrants issued out of Dorchester District Court for murder, armed assault to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and carrying a firearm without a license. Herman is expected to be arraigned in Dorchester District Court, but the date of the arraignment has not yet been announced.
Herman resides on Nantucket and was a former employee at Nantucket Cottage Hospital - where he worked for three to four years with the facility's environmental services staff.
Boston Police stated the warrant Herman was arrested on stems from a September 9th murder that took place at 12 Greenock Street off Blue Hill Avenue in Dorchester.
According to Boston Police, the officers located an adult female suffering from a gunshot wound at 12 Greenock Street at 5:26 a.m. that morning. The victim was transported by Boston EMS to a local hospital where she was pronounced deceased. The victim has since been identified as Princess Charles, 29, of Quincy. A second victim, who was shot multiple times at the same location, was located at a local hospital suffering from non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.
Another suspect in the shooting, Kevin Facey, 28, of Randolph, MA, was arrested in Providence on Tuesday.
The group of law enforcement officers who arrested Herman Thursday morning were spotted by numerous island residents dropping their children off at the nearby Nantucket New School and Small Friends early education center Thursday morning. MacVicar said the timing of the arrest was determined by the mainland police agencies.
“Because of the circumstances involving the case, there was an urgency to serve the arrest warrant,” MacVicar said. “We acted in support to the other three agencies involved."
MacVicar said he was not aware of any prior incidents involving the suspect on Nantucket.
