A 26-year-old man was arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a man in Roxbury last April, Boston police said Friday.

James Morale, of Boston, is charged with murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, and unlawful possession of ammunition, Boston police said in a statement. Morale was stopped for a motor vehicle infraction when officers discovered he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.
