Brockton man faces arrest for teen’s murder from Nov. 2007

Andre McNeil allegedly waited until David Jones left school so he could join him on his walk home in order to kill him.

That’s what prosecutors said happened on Nov. 14, 2007, charging McNeil with the murder of the 17-year-old and illegal gun possession. McNeil, 22, pleaded not guilty during his arraignment yesterday and was ordered held without bail.

The arrest comes four years after the murder because investigators were able to secure corroborating forensic evidence and confirm “other idiosyncratic details,” according to the Suffolk district attorney’s office.

McNeil formerly attended Madison Park High School in Roxbury where Jones was a recent transfer student at the time of the shooting.

Prosecutors said McNeil waited across the street from the school until students were dismissed for the day. The young men met up at some point and walked away from the school together, authorities said. They got a few blocks away and shots rang out near Bartlett Street. That’s where emergency crews found Jones with gunshot wounds.

After the shooting, McNeil allegedly “was on the phone reporting to his associates what he had done,” prosecutors said.

McNeil is due back in court March 7.
