The 30-year old Joseph was shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police Commissioner William Evans said several anonymous tips helped police track the 25-year-old Musa to New Bedford, where he was arrested Friday.

Musa's lawyer said his client denies shooting Joseph.

Joseph had been accused of shooting and paralyzing Musa's brother a decade ago, but never went to trial. Families of both men told The Boston Globe there was no connection between the shootings.
