He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on several charges, including two counts of murder.

The Eagle-Tribune reports that police also arrested the driver who allegedly tried to give Sanchez a ride after his flight from police.

Four people were shot July 23.

Authorities say 20-year-old Anndy Guzman of Lawrence and 19-year-old William Melchionda of Haverhill were killed.
