BOSTON — Boston police have arrested a suspect in connection with a 2021 homicide on Tremont Street, officials announced Tuesday.

At about 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 11, members of the Fugitive Unit apprehended Zykaris Hamilton, 19, of Mattapan, in the area of 450 Canterbury Street.

Hamilton was wanted on murder and unlawful possession of a firearm warrants issued by Suffolk Superior Court for the death of Fermin Baez, 32, of Dorchester.

The arrest stems from an incident that occurred around 8:47 p.m. on June 7, 2021, when officers from District B-2 (Roxbury) responded to reports of a shooting at 1510 Tremont Street.

Upon arrival, they found Baez with a life-threatening gunshot wound.

He was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Hamilton is expected to be arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court.

The Boston Police Department continues to investigate the case and is urging anyone with information to contact Boston Police Homicide Detectives at 617-343-4470.
