Police tonight identified the man tonight as Javier Maldonado, 32, of 326 Lovell St. and said the exact cause of death was unknown and an autopsy was scheduled for tomorrow.
Both women -- one 36 years old and the other 18 years old -- were in critical condition tonight, police said. Mr. Maldonado and the 36-year-old were a couple, according to police.
The 18-year-old is the mother of the baby found in the street, according to police, and she is related to Mr. Maldonado or the other woman.
Mr. Maldonado died from injuries inflicted in an attack, police said. All three victims lived on the first floor.
“Based on our preliminary investigation, we do not believe this is a random act
,” Police Chief Gary J. Gemme said.
Police would not discuss any details of what caused the injuries. The fatal injury to Mr. Maldonado was also not disclosed.
One woman, who did not want to be identified, said a man lived on the first floor, while the other two floors of the three-story building were unoccupied. She said cars pulled up to the home frequently.
Another neighbor called the home “trouble” and said she stayed away. Many other residents, however, said the building was relatively quiet over the past several months. They didn't really know the people inside. One woman said the residents kept to themselves.
