Suspect In Randolph Murder Arrested In Lynn

RANDOLPH (CBS) – The man wanted for a murder in Randolph has been taken into custody. State Police say 32-year-old Justin Gaston surrendered to officers in Lynn Tuesday afternoon.

Gaston was wanted for the shooting death of 33-year-old Haki Sanders at Sanders' home on Petipas Lane in Randolph Monday night. Police said Gaston and Sanders knew each other and the incident was not random.
