Man arrested for May murder in Charlestown

Pablo Flores, Jr., 20, is scheduled for arraignment today on a charge of murder for the shooting death of Steven Jones, 21, on Monument Street on May 7.

Police pegged Flores as their suspect early in the investigation - police obtained an arrest warrant for him the next day and a Suffolk County grand jury indicted him on June 26. Boston Police report they finally caught up with him yesterday, on Ridgewood Street in Dorchester.

Innocent, etc.

      Victim was trying to break up a fight

      Pablo Flores objected to Steven Jones trying to keep him from beating up another man, so he shot him to death, prosecutors said yesterday.

      Suffolk Superior Court Clerk Magistrate Gary D. Wilson yesterday ordered Flores held without bail pending his trial for second-degree murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, and multiple counts of assault with a dangerous weapons, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

      According to the DA's office:

      Jones, who was also a Charlestown resident, was walking with a friend on Monument Avenue just after 10:00 p.m. on May 7 when he saw Flores fighting with another man.

      The man the defendant was fighting was not only unarmed, but shorter and smaller than the defendant,” [Assistant DA Gretchen] Lundgren said.

      Jones and his friend stepped in to break the fight up. Neither of them was armed.

      "While Mr. Jones and his friend tried to pull apart the defendant and the man he was fighting, the defendant pushed everyone off of him, stepped back, pulled a gun from his waist area, and fired multiple shots at close range," Lundgren said.

      Jones was struck in the chest and stomach, causing injuries that claimed his life. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
