BOSTON (AP) — Police have made an arrest in connection with the fatal shooting of an MBTA train conductor outside a bar near Fenway Park early on Thanksgiving Day.

Dominique Carpenter-Grady was held on $250,000 bail Thursday after not guilty pleas were entered on his behalf to firearms charges. He was charged in connection with the Nov. 26 shooting of Jephthe Chery.

Prosecutors say Carpenter-Grady and another man got into a shootout outside Who’s On First at about 2 a.m.

Chery, who had been at the bar, was apparently an innocent bystander. Who shot Chery remains under investigation.

Chery was a commuter rail conductor for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.

Carpenter-Grady was among three other people wounded in the shooting.

A defense attorney said prosecutors had not provided evidence of Carpenter-Grady’s involvement.
