BOSTON, Nov. 23 (UPI) -- A man believed responsible for one of the worst multiple homicides in Boston's history has been arrested, police said Tuesday.

Dwayne Moore, 33, has been charged with four counts of murder in connection with the Sept. 28th shooting deaths of three adults and a 2-year-old child at a home in Boston's Mattapan neighborhood.

The victims were found in various states of undress and had been shot several times.

A fourth adult was critically injured in the incident.

Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley declined to comment on Moore's arrest because the investigation is ongoing.

Police said Moore has a criminal record and was recently released after spending several years in state prison.

Police suspect a drug connection to the killings.
