BROCKTON – A Brockton man pleaded not guilty to charges that he fatally shot his own brother, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz has announced.

Jeremiah Abreau, 20, pleaded not guilty at this arraignment today in Brockton District Court to one count each of Murder, Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon, Possession of a Firearm without an FID Card, and Possession of Ammunition. He was held without bail.

On March 31, 2024, at approximately 2:17 a.m., Brockton Police received a 911 call for a report of a shooting inside a home at 36 Hoover Avenue. Police and emergency medical personnel responded, and located a male party who was shot in the chest. He was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital where he was pronounced dead of his injuries. He has been identified as 27 year-old Sedrick Abreau. Jeremiah Abreau is the brother of Sedrick Abreu.

Members of Plymouth SPDU, Brockton Police, State Police Crime Scene Services Section, State Police Ballistics, and State Police Crime Lab executed a search warrant at 36 Hoover Avenue. Several items of evidentiary value were secured as evidence. As a result of the ongoing and active investigation, Massachusetts State Police sought and obtained an arrest warrant for Abreau, and he was arrested in Maine last week.

Two additional men, Sirick Amado, 24, and Antonio Dejesus, 26, have pleaded not guilty to a charge of Accessory to the Homicide for their roles in the shooting. They are being held without bail.

Abreau is next scheduled to appear in court on May 6th.
