Lynn man found dead in Lawrence

LAWRENCE — The body of a Lynn man was found in a parking lot in Lawrence early Wednesday morning.

Essex County District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett’s office identified the man as Ellis J. Wright, 47, of Lynn. Wright’s body was found with gunshot wounds in a lot adjacent to 85 Manchester St., according to D.A. spokesperson Carrie Kimball-Monahan. Lawrence Police received a 911 call from a woman who heard shots fired and responding officers found the body just before 5 a.m. on Wednesday.

Niko Bianco, 22, of Amesbury, was arrested Thursday afternoon in Manchester, N.H., Kimball-Monahan said. He was arraigned on a fugitive justice charge. Bianco’s return to Massachusetts will depend on whether or not he waives rendition during his New Hampshire arraignment, Kimball-Monahan said.

Wright’s official cause of death is unknown and the investigation is still ongoing, she said.
