NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WPRI) — A Bristol County grand jury has indicted a New Bedford man in the murder of a store manager back in January.

Ronald Jason Valliere, 34, is charged with murder and carrying an illegal firearm in the shooting death of Javon Brown, according to the office of District Attorney Thomas Quinn.

Investigators say Valliere shot the 36-year-old twice following an argument inside the cell phone store Brown manages on Coggeshall Street, then again outside the store, killing him in broad daylight.

An arraignment date has not been set for Valliere.
