Man Charged In Boston Shootings Due In Court

A Boston man charged in connection with the shooting deaths of four people — including a 2-year-old boy — is due in court on weapons charges.

Kimani Washington is scheduled to be arraigned in Dorchester District Court on Wednesday.

Washington was arrested on Oct. 1 in Manchester, N.H., three days after five people were shot in Boston's Mattapan neighborhood. Four people died, including a young mother and her 2-year-old son. A fifth person remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Washington is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and receiving a stolen motor vehicle. He has not been charged with murder.

Washington's lawyer has said he denies hurting anyone.
