Edward Washington, a 31-year-old Dorchester man, was arrested on Wednesday by Boston police. Washington will be charged with four counts of murder, one count of armed assualt with intent to murder, home invasion, armed robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm, all in connection with the Mattapan deaths.

At the end of September, Levaughn Washum-Garrison, Simba Martin, Eyanna Flonory and her two-year-old son Amanihotep Smith were shot and killed on Woolson Street, off of Blue Hill Avenue in Mattapan. A fifth victim was shot and remains in critical condition.

Washington's cousin, Kimani Washington, was arrested early in October on drug and gun charges stemming from the tragedy. In late November, Dwayne Moore was arrested and charged with four counts of murder and one charge related to shooting of the fifth victim.

Washington is expected to be arraigned Thursday morning in Dorchester District Court.
