LOWELL — Police have arrested a man on charges of fatally shooting two sons of a retired Lowell police sergeant earlier this month, officials said Wednesday.
Dara Poum, 28, whose last known address was in Chelsea, was arrested Tuesday on charges including murder and armed burglary for the Aug. 10 shooting deaths of Keith Callahan, 35, and Joseph Callahan, 29, the office of District Attorney Marian T. Ryan said.
The victims, who were shot around 2:30 a.m. on Andrews Street, are the sons of retired Lowell police sergeant Richard Callahan.
“This is a horrific crime for any family,” Ryan said during a briefing outside of Lowell police headquarters.
She released few details about the slayings but did say Poum went to the Andrews Street address looking for someone other than the brothers.
