Man arrested in connection with quadruple slayings

Kimani Washington faces weapons charges in connection with the shooting deaths.

A Massachusetts man has been arrested in connection with the shooting deaths of four people, including a toddler, in Boston Tuesday, police said Saturday.

Kimani Washington, 35, was arrested without incident Friday night in an apartment complex in Manchester, New Hampshire, police there said. He is being held in New Hampshire pending his arraignment at Manchester District Court on a fugitive from justice charge.

"Today should serve as a warning to all those who seek to harm others,"
said Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. "Our offices will not rest until you are hunted down, captured and locked up."

In Massachusetts, Washington faces charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and receiving a stolen motor vehicle in connection with the shooting, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said.

The brutal shootings occurred on Sept. 28 around 1:15 a.m. in the Mattapan neighborhood of Boston.

The shootings did not appear to be random, District Attorney Dan Conley said earlier this week. The individuals were found lying in the street - one of them naked. He has not been charged with murder.

Police identified the victims as Eyanna Louise Flonory, 21, her 2-year-old son, Amanihotep Smith, Simba Martin, 21, and Lavaughan Washum-Garrison, 22, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office.

A fifth person was brought to the hospital in critical condition.

The police commissioner declined to comment on whether Washington may have been the shooter in this case. He also refused to say whether police have any other suspects.

      I'm sorry worm. I did'nt intend on calling you a racist. It was hoodie that made a racist remark. I was saying to scot that God allows us to make our own decisions. The bible, chapels, are there to help us make the right one. Everyone makes mistakes. It just the kind of mistakes that may cost us our life. Some people do things to hang themselves and don't give a care about anyone or anything. Crime knows no color.

    To Jeff,

    The reason why God allows all this bad things to happen, is because before he created the earth and the human beings, he created the angels, millions of them. Well, one of them turn against God and became Satan or the Devil. This angel told god in front of all the other millions of angels that he could rule the world better than god. So, God could have destroyed him right there and then. However, what would have all the other angels thought about god? That he was a dictator and that who ever said anything against him would be do away with... So, instead God decided to allow time for this angel to prove his allegations, therefore the ruler of the world right now is not God but the Devil. However, this will not last forever, since by now God has given him plenty of time to prove his allegations, and as it is obvious he is not able to rule the world better than God. So, very soon now God is going to put an end to the devil"s ruling, and destroy all the bad people. As for the good people they are going to survive this destruction and stay here on earth to make it into a paradise, which was God original plan for mankind.

    TO JEFF,

    You ask "Why does God allow suffering in the world?"

    The short answer is that God has graciously allowed man FREEWILL.

    An excerpt from http://www.christadelphia.org....

    "Man lives in a universe of cause and effect and the consequences of certain causes are inescapable. Fire burns, water drowns, disease germs destroy. These facts have moral implications. Men live in a universe in which the consequences of what they do are inescapable, and therefore their responsibility for what they do is equally inescapable. Without this burden of 'natural law' man could do as he liked with impunity, and there would be no responsibility. God made the universe this way because He is a moral God who makes men responsible beings with freewill to choose how they will act."

    The person that committed these terrible acts will answer for them either here and/or in the afterlife when God judges us all for the lives we have led.

    Hope this helps you on your journey of enlightenment to find salvation through Jesus Christ.

      My answer also. God only knows when you are going to die. He does not say how it will happen.

    Jeff – God allows innocent people to suffer because people have free will and some choose to hurt or kill. No Christian should dodge your questions or push you away. Keep in mind that not everyone that claims to be a Christian is. Maybe your friend is young in his faith?
