Brockton Police Identify Suspects in Murder of City Teen
BROCKTON — Two men have been arrested and a warrant issued for another man in connection to the September 2021 murder of a Brockton teenager, according to the Plymouth County District Attorney's Office.
On Friday, state and Brockton police arrested 22-year-old Angel Colon on one count of murder in the killing of 16-year-old Liedson Monteiro-Terry, the D.A.'s office stated in a release.
The office confirmed that on Saturday, 23-year-old Angel Vasquez was also caught and arrested on a murder charge.

Just after 1 a.m. on Sept. 4, ShotSpotter detected three gunshots near 40 Sprague St. in Brockton.
Police arrived to find a large crowd assembled at a party, according to the D.A.'s office.

Authorities interviewed witnesses, reviewed video surveillance footage, and collected physical evidence during the investigation.
Colon was arrested without incident on Friday evening, and Vasquez was taken into custody on Saturday.
Both men are set to be arraigned Monday.
Meanwhile a D.A.'s office spokesperson confirmed that state and Brockton police continue to search for Cotton.
