Three people from outside Northborough were in court Monday on charges related to a shooting at a house party early Sunday morning that left a teen dead and another teen injured, officials said.

20-year-old Wallisom Texeira Da Silva, of Hyde Park, is facing the most charges of the three. He is charged with possessing an assault weapon, possessing a firearm in felony, carrying a firearm without a license, and possessing ammunition with a license, a spokesperson for the Worcester County District Attorney said.

19-year-old Arnoldo Nogueira Filho of Marlborough is charged with unlicensed possession of an assault weapon and for possessing ammunition without a license. 27-year-old Pedro Desouza-Passos of Rockland is facing the same charges, the DA said.

The arrests after the house party

The three were passengers in a car stopped by police about an hour after officers responded to the shooting on Howard Street, court documents show. The party was the 21st birthday party for the woman driving the three men.

In the backseat of her car, police wrote in their arrest report, they found two purses with ammunition inside. Texeira Da Silva said the one with one 9 mm bullet was his, and the other unclaimed purse had a 30-round magazine with 17 bullets. The bag also contained clothes and “other female paraphernalia,” police wrote.

The three passengers were taken into custody, according to court documents. Later, police said they found a weapon “suspected to be a 9mm” at the scene of the party, which Texeira Da Silva also said was his.

About 300 people were at the party, the DA said in a press conference Sunday, which was at an Airbnb property. The boy who died was from Bellingham, but police said he was not a student at Bellingham Public Schools.

Da Silva was ordered held ahead of a dangerousness hearing next week. Both Filho and Desouza-Passos were also held in Worcester County House of Correction.
