Man held in shooting that narrowly missed neighbor, infant


The second-floor tenants later admitted that they did know who “E” was, telling investigators that Timouche works with one of the men at Tufts Medical Center in Boston and that they had gone to a bar in Salem before returning to the man’s apartment after the bar closed.

Police obtained an arrest warrant and arrested Timouche in Boston yesterday morning.

During a brief court appearance before Salem District Court Judge Matthew Nestor, Timouche pleaded not guilty to the home invasion charge. Prosecutors filed a motion seeking that Timouche be held without bail as a danger.

Timouche’s attorney, Craig Mulcahy, asked the judge for 30 days to prepare for that hearing, an unusual request because the law concerning detention without bail usually allows the defense only seven days. Mulcahy said Timouche’s privately hired attorney was tied up on a murder trial in Fall River and would not be available.

Nestor agreed to the request, ordering Timouche to remain in custody at Middleton Jail pending the Oct. 16 hearing.

The investigation is being led by Salem police detective Sgt. Kristian Hanson, along with fellow detectives Lt. Steve Bona, Capt. Thomas Griffin, Sgt. James Page, Dennis Gaudet, Kevin St. Pierre and Brian St. Pierre, Sgt. Andrew Dacy, and Patrolmen Ryan Arundel and Derek Sears. Two Salem State University campus police officers assisted, as did state police troopers who happened to be at the police station investigating the unrelated death of a man who had died while trying to climb into a boat earlier in the night.
