Officials said one victim, 36-year-old Gregory Grantsis, had a gunshot wound to the face. A second male victim suffered from gunshot wounds to the leg and torso. There was a third occupant of the vehicle, but that person was not shot.

Authorities said Grantsis was taken to Brockton Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The second man was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital.

An investigation began, which led to arrest warrants being issued for 26-year-old Shamallah Jones and 26-year-old Ashley Severino, detectives stated.

On Dec. 3, Massachusetts State Police, Brockton police and Boston police located Jones in Boston and he was arrested without incident.

Jones was arraigned on Dec. 6 and charged with murder, attempted murder and assault and battery with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury, Cruz said. He pleaded not guilty and was held without bail.

Severino was also arraigned on Dec. 6, where she was charged with one count of accessory after the fact, Cruz said. She pleaded not guilty and bail was set at $3,000.
