NH Man Charged With Murder

Detectives investigating the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man in Lynn on Monday have obtained warrant charging Brian BRITO, (DOB 5/27/1995), of Manchester, NH, with the murder. He will be arraigned on one count of first degree murder in Lynn District Court tomorrow (Thursday, March 30).

“This was a brazen, senseless act that not only took the life of a hard-working young man, but also frightened community members,” District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett said.  “I am grateful to the many law enforcement officers who worked so diligently to obtain this warrant so that we may begin the process of securing justice on behalf of Mr. Zangiband and his family.”

BRITO is currently held without bail in Middleton House of Corrections following his arraignment in Peabody District Court yesterday on a firearms charge.  North Andover Police have charged him with aggravated rape, armed robbery while masked and kidnapping.  He is expected to be arraigned on those charges on Monday, April 3rd in Lawrence District Court.

BRITO is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
