[ARCHIVED] Everett Man Arrested in Murder of Jaden Brito-White

MALDEN - Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Malden Chief of Police Kevin Molis have confirmed that Sifeddine Rogadi, 20 of Everett was arrested today on charges of murder, armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery by discharge of a firearm, possession of a large capacity firearm, and possession of ammunition in connection with the fatal shooting of Jaden Brito-White, 18 of Malden that occurred on December 29, 2020. He will be arraigned tomorrow in Malden District Court.

On December 29, at approximately 7:03 p.m., Malden Police responded to a report of a shooting that had occurred on Bowdoin Street. Upon arrival, officers located Jaden Brito-White suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. 

The preliminary investigation suggested that Mr. Brito-White was standing outside of his apartment building when two males allegedly approached him and shot him.

During the subsequent investigation, officials were able to gather surveillance video from the area that allegedly showed a Chevy Malibu with a distinct paint color in the area at the time of the shooting.  Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office subsequently located the vehicle while it was being driven by Mr. Rogadi. The car was seized and a search warrant for the car was obtained.  During the execution of the search warrant police located a loaded 9mm handgun consistent with the type of gun used in the fatal shooting.  The serial number plate located underneath the gun barrel was blank.  As the serial number was absent, and not obliterated, investigators believe the weapon may be a “ghost gun”.  These guns are often manufactured from firearm parts kits, often lack identifying marks and are made to be untraceable. 

During a further review of the evidence and surveillance video collected in the area of the shooting investigators were allegedly able to identify Rogadi as one of the individuals involved in the shooting.

Rogadi was arrested tonight without incident in Cambridge by Massachusetts State Police, Cambridge Police and Malden Police.

The investigation into this matter, including the identity of the second individual involved, and the motive, is still open and ongoing.  This case is being investigated by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, Massachusetts State Police assigned to that office and the Malden Police Department. The prosecutors assigned to this case are Clarence Brown and Julie Kunkel. The Victim Witness Advocate is Anne Foley.
