A 20-year-old Lynn man was ordered held without bail Tuesday following his arraignment on a murder charge, according to Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office.
Jaquan Shepard is accused of the fatal shooting of Phillip Demings, 17, of Weymouth, on Bowdoin Street in Dorchester.
Prosecutors allege that Shepard shot the victim multiple times on the afternoon of Dec. 19, Shepard was identified through surveillance camera images, witness statements and other evidence, prosecutors said.
He turned himself into Boston police on Tuesday, three days after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
“Shepard was the subject of an arrest warrant issued this weekend and was taken into custody by Boston Police today after he surrendered,” Conley’s office said in a statement.
A motive for the killing hasn’t been disclosed.
He is due back in court on Feb. 8, prosecutors said.
