A 26-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Wednesday for the murder of another Lawrence man earlier this month.

Essex County District Attorney Paul F. Tucker said Hector Raul Aybar-Soto was charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of 24-year-old Christopher Garcia in Lawrence on March 17.

Aybar-Soto is expected to be arraigned Thursday in Lawrence District Court.

Lawrence Police found Garcia suffering from a gunshot wound after the department received a series of 911 calls just before midnight Friday, March 17, reporting shots fired and a man down near 216 Walnut St.

The murder was investigated by members of the Essex County District Attorney’s office State Police Detective Unit and detectives from the Lawrence Police Department.
