A 19-year-old North Attleboro man will be arraigned today in Attleboro District Court on two charges of murder and one charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in connection to a triple-stabbing which occurred in North Attleboro Thursday night.
Daniel Randall has been formally booked at the North Attleboro Police Department and is at Attleboro District Court awaiting arraignment on the charges.
North Attleboro Police, Massachusetts State Police detectives assigned to this office and Homicide Unit prosecutors continue to actively investigate the homicide at this hour.
North Attleboro Police were dispatched to 25 Birch Road at around 8:40 Thursday evening for a reported stabbing involving three victims.
One victim, Aidan Hanrahan, 21, of North Attleboro, was located by first responders inside the home and was determined to be deceased upon their arrival.
Another victim, Joshua Lemken, 21, of North Attleboro, was also located inside the home and was treated on scene by Paramedics before being transported to Rhode Island Hospital. Despite the efforts of hospital staff, Mr. Lemken died during the overnight hours as a result of the stabbing injuries he sustained.
A third victim, also a 21-year-old North Attleboro man, was located by first responders outside the home suffering from apparent stab wounds. This victim was treated at the scene by paramedics before being rushed to Sturdy Memorial Hospital. He was later transferred to Rhode Island Hospital, where he remains in serious, but stable condition.
The investigation is being coordinated by Assistant District Attorney Carolyn Morissette, who will be handling today’s arraignment in court.
