Jesse James Sullivan, 31, is facing a charge of second-degree murder, among other charges.

The half-brother of a teen who was shot and killed in Concord, N.H. last month has been arrested and is being charged in his death.

Jesse James Sullivan, 31, of Concord, N.H., is facing multiple charges, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office.

Concord police responded to the report of a shooting near 208 Garvins Falls Road around 7:11 p.m. on Jan. 16. At the scene, they found Zackary Sullivan, 19, suffering from a single gunshot wound to the neck.

According to the AG’s office, Sullivan is being charged with one count of second-degree murder “for knowingly causing the death of Zackary Sullivan by shooting him” and an alternative count of second-degree murder “for recklessly causing Zackary Sullivan’s death.” Sullivan is also charged with falsifying physical evidence for allegedly discarding the gun used in the shooting.

The 31-year-old will be arraigned Tuesday in Concord Circuit Court.
