REVERE — A second man is being sought in connection with a double murder in Revere earlier this month, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley and Revere Police Chief Joseph Cafarelli said Tuesday.

Vicheth So, 36, of Everett, is wanted on a warrant, and is charged with two counts of murder and armed assault with intent to murder in connection with the Dec. 10 shooting that killed Cristy Johnson, 35, and Peter Pitari, 66, both of Revere, and seriously injured a 38-year-old man, according to the DA’s office.

Revere police responded to 70 Waite St. shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 10 and located the three victims, who were suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds. Johnson and Pitari later died from their injuries, according to the DA’s office.

Revere Police and state police detectives assigned to Conley’s office arrested Michael DeLeon, 36, of Lynn Dec. 11. DeLeon remains held without bail, according to the DA’s office.

The State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section is seeking So, who was identified in the days following the incident, according to the DA’s office.

Anyone with information on So’s location is asked to contact Revere Police at 781-284-1212 or the Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit at 617-727-8817.
