Third suspect arrested in McCubbin shooting

Boston police detectives on Thursday arrested a third suspect in last month’s fatal shooting of 25-year-old Romeo McCubbin, the Suffolk district attorney’s office said.

Javaine Watson, 23, pleaded innocent to the murder charge at his arraignment in Dorchester Municipal Court, just hours after his arrest. He was held without bail, said Jake Wark, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office.

Prosecutors allege that Watson and two other men,¬†Omar Bonner, 26, and Omar Denton, 29, shot McCubbin around 1:45 p.m. on Dec. 14. McCubbin was sitting in his car on Havelock Street in Mattapan when he was attacked, Wark said.

Bonner and Denton were arrested shortly after the shooting and are currently being held without bail. Watson is scheduled to return to court Feb. 27.
