A 17-year-old Somerville boy is now facing a manslaughter charge stemming from the shooting of a Malden teenager inside the suspect’s home on Aug. 29.
Jonathan T. Perry is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday in Cambridge Juvenile Court as a youthful offender, a legal status that opens court proceedings to the public, according to Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan’s office, which is prosecuting.
Following the shooting, Perry was on the run for nearly a week before he was located in Arlington and taken into custody.
Officials have said that the shooting did not appear to be a random act and that Tenzin Kunkhyen was in the Somerville home, which was Perry’s last known address, with people who knew him at the time of the incident.
Kunkhyen, who was 16, had attended Somerville High School before his family moved to Malden. Kunkhyen’s parents are Tibetan and had moved to the United States from India.
A motive for the shooting has not been disclosed by authorities.
