Jacquan McKenzie charged in murder

LYNN, Mass. — A Lynn teenager charged with a fatal shooting in the city in January has been held without bail. Eighteen-year-old Jacquan McKenzie is charged with killing 29-year-old Hery Aquino on Jan. 12.
McKenzie was previously charged with trespassing, carrying a firearm without a license, and carrying a loaded firearm after being caught fleeing the scene of the shooting, but on Wednesday was charged with murder. A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.
Prosecutors said in court Thursday that McKenzie was charged with murder because gunshot residue from a weapon used in the shooting was found on his clothes. The Daily Item reports that the defendant’s lawyer said at least two guns were used in the shooting and suggested another explanation for the gunshot residue.

Three-alarm fire damages Henry Avenue home

LYNN, Mass. — A three-story wood frame building caught fire in Lynn on Wednesday morning.

The fire at 49 Henry Avenue quickly went to three alarms.

Watch report

The residents of the house were alerted at 7 a.m. when a tow trucker driver and a Lynn police officer spotted the smoke and ran into the house, pounding on doors.

Lynn Fire Chief James McDonald said nine adults and one child got out without injury.

Resident Kesner Pierre said he was in the shower when he “heard banging.” Pierre told his wife and toddler “to wake up and get out.”

The fire chief said the fire likely began on the second floor, though the cause remains under investigation.

Additional fire units were rushed to the scene because of the windy conditions.
