Shooting Suspect Identified, Man is from Boston
A Boston man has been identified as the suspect in Tuesday's Four Corners shooting.
A 25-year-old Boston man has been identified as the suspect in police custody after Tuesday's shooting at Four Corners.
Antonio Matos, 25, of Boston, was identified today by a relative as the man charged with masked armed robbery (2 counts) and assault with the intent to murder (2 counts), said Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone in a statement Thursday night.
During the armed robbery and subsequent shooting, Woburn Police Officer Robert DeNapoli was shot multiple times and sustained serious injuries. According to authorities, Officer DeNapoli is in "good" condition after the shooting.
Matos remains hospitalized in serious condition as a result of injuries he sustained at the time of the incident, said Leone.
Early Thursday morning, Woburn Police and the DA's office released photos of Matos' tattoos, in an attempt to identify the man.
Matos was taken into custody after the armed robbery on Mayflower Road, when he was surrounded by officers from Woburn and other area towns. A white "Phantom of the Opera style" mask was found in the area, which may have been used in the robbery, according to a police report.
"The investigation, as well as the search for additional suspects alleged to have been involved the robbery, remains ongoing," said Leone Thursday night. "Due to the safety of the investigators involved in the operation to locate the suspects, no further details are being released regarding the search at this time."
On Thursday, a "be on the lookout" alert was issued to area police departments and the Massachusetts State Police for a 1998 Toyota Camry, license plate 77HB52, that was stolen and may have been used in Tuesday's armed robbery.
