Lawrence teenager arrested in connection with fatal hit-and-run in Methuen

Police on Monday arrested a 16-year-old Lawrence boy in connection with a hit-and-run that killed a pedestrian last week in Methuen, officials said.

Timothy Lafferty, 57, was struck near 253 Jackson St. on Oct. 14 about 8:40 p.m., and succumbed to his injuries at the scene, the Globe reported last week.

The suspect, who was not identified because he is a juvenile, was arrested on a warrant about 4:30 p.m. in Lawrence, according to Sergeant Scott Lever. Police did not specify what charges he is facing.
