Update:  A Buzzards Bay man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a man found lying on a street in Bourne.

The Cape and Islands district attorney’s office said Tuesday that 25-year-old Sonny Tavares has been charged with murder, home invasion, assault and weapons violations in the death of 22-year-old Antone Gutierrez of Wareham.

Prosecutors said Gutierrez was shot during an alleged heroin transaction with Tavares and others.

The Cape Cod Times reports police found Gutierrez on Trowbridge Road after getting a call from a passer-by at about 9:40 p.m. Monday. Gutierrez was pronounced dead three hours later at a hospital.

Bourne Police Lt. Richard Silvestro told the Times police are investigating a hotel room invasion nearby at about the same time.   (Associated Press)
