BOSTON (AP) -- Police have arrested a suspect in the Christmas Day shooting death of a Boston man.

Authorities say 27-year-old Ian Holness was arrested Wednesday and charged in connection with the Dec. 25 shooting of 34-year-old Rashaan O’Neil at a house party.

Holness is expected to be arraigned Thursday on a murder charge. It could not be determined if he had a lawyer.

Police responded to a Dorchester address at about 4 a.m. Christmas Day for reports of a man shot. O’Neil was pronounced dead at the scene. A woman was also treated for minor injuries sustained from glass debris.

Police said at the time the shooting happened after a fight.
