Man dies after being shot in the face in Brockton

BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — A prosecutor says a 23-year-old man has died after being shot in the face in Brockton.

Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz says Manny Junior Andrade of Taunton died at a hospital after a Brockton police officer found him suffering from a gunshot wound in a car Thursday morning.

Cruz says Andrade was a passenger in the car, which stopped on North Main Street where the officer was working a detail. Authorities didn’t release any more details.

No arrests have been announced. Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call Brockton police.

Police say Andrade was found in a Mercedes that had a broken rear windshield. Officers recovered several bullet casings on a nearby street.
