WORCESTER, Mass. – A Worcester man faces arraignment after his arrest for allegedly killing another man with a machete during what appears to have been a dispute between a landlord and a tenant.
Daniel Harrigan will be arraigned Monday in Worcester District Court on a murder charge.
Police say officers responding to a report of two men fighting in front of a Douglas Street home just after midnight Saturday saw the 24-year-old Harrigan standing over the victim and hitting him with a machete.
Police arrested Harrigan after ordering him at gunpoint to drop the weapon.
Emergency workers rushed 29-year-old Kodjo Abbey to the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester where he was pronounced dead.
Police say Harrigan's father owns the building and Abbey was a tenant.
