Newton Man Charged In Killing Of Waltham Teen Faces Arraignment

WALTHAM, Mass. — A Newton man charged with playing a role in the killing of a Waltham High School senior and varsity wrestling captain is facing arraignment.

Taylor Poulin is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Waltham District Court on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, unlicensed possession of a firearm, and conspiracy to violate drug laws.

The 21-year-old Poulin is one of two men facing charges in connection with the March 20 shooting death of 17-year-old Tyler Zanco.

An arrest warrant affidavit says Zanco was shot when he and two friends attempted to rob Poulin, believing he cheated Zanco’s cousin in a marijuana deal. The alleged shooter, a 22-year-old Belmont man, remains at large.

Poulin was tracked down in Windham, Maine several days after the shooting.
