2nd Arrest Made in Harvard Dorm Shooting

Published June 11, 2009

Authorities have made a second arrest in connection with a fatal shooting at a Harvard University dormitory. 

A spokesman for the Middlesex District Attorney's office says 19-year-old Blayn Jiggetts (BLAINE JIG'-etts) of Mount Vernon, N.Y. was arrested just before midnight Tuesday in New York City. 

Authorities in Boston have said the May 18 shooting at the Ivy League school was a drug-related robbery attempt. 

Jiggetts is scheduled to be arraigned in New York on Wednesday.  He faces charges of first-degree murder, carrying a firearm without a license, and armed robbery in Massachusetts.

Justin Cosby was shot inside an entranceway to Kirkland House dorm. New York City songwriter Jabrai (juh-BRY') Jordan Copney has been charged with murder.
