Alden Lara is Arraigned for the Murder of Michael Barrera

Alden Lara

Today, police escorted Alden Lara before Magistrate Kadeem Palmer to face a charge of murder.  Lara is accused of Tuesday evening’s shooting that claimed the life of Michael Barrera. The social worker had just placed an order for food at a takeout outlet on Central American Boulevard near its junction with Iguana Street. Police said that the shooter came from the direction of Iguana Street and was targeting another person, who was also waiting to be served at the business establishment. It was presumably a gang-related attack. The intended target fled and managed to escape unscathed. Police had detained several persons, but only Lara has been charged. He is remanded to the Hattieville prison until June second.
