DORCHESTER (WHDH) – A Plymouth man was arrested Friday in connection with a fatal shooting last month in Dorchester, police said.

Derrell Russell, 29, of Plymouth, was arrested on a murder charge for his alleged role in the April 28 shooting death of 34-year-old Dwayne Thomas, of Dorchester. Thomas was found on Hartford Street about 2:45 a.m. suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Boston Police Commissioner William  B. Evans praised the “hard work and dedication” of his officers that led to the arrest.

“The fact that the suspect was in custody less than a week after the original call is a credit to my officers and their ongoing commitment to protecting and serving the citizens of Boston,” Evans said in a statement.

Russell is expected to be arraigned in Roxbury District Court on Monday.
