Two from Bristol County indicted for alleged roles in murder of 19-year-old Milteer Hendricks



Cape & Islands District Attorney Robert Galibois today announced that a Grand Jury has indicted 24-year-old Armando Gomes and 22-year-old Adrian Black, both of Taunton, for their alleged roles in the homicide of 19-year-old Milteer Hendricks on June 10th in Falmouth.

Both individuals were indicted on the charge of murder.

The charges stem from an investigated conducted by the Falmouth Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police Detectives Unit Assigned to the Cape & Islands District Attorney’s Office. Second Assistant District Attorney Tara Cappola, and Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Isaacs, and Deborah McCoy Victim/ Witness Assistant, will be prosecuting the case.

At approximately 4:44 p.m., the Falmouth Police Department received a 911 call reporting a possible stabbing victim and requested an ambulance to the Grove Apartment Complex. Officers located a male, later identified as Hendricks, bleeding from the chest with apparent stab wounds.

Hendricks was transported to Falmouth Hospital by Mashpee Fire/Rescue and later med-flown to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in critical condition where he later died in surgery.

The investigation revealed that at approximately 4:45 p.m., a gray BMW pulled into the back parking lot of the apartment complex with music playing loudly. Gomes was allegedly the driver of that vehicle which held a total of 5 individuals, including Adrian Black. The 5 males exited the BMW and an argument ensued between the men from the BMW and Hendricks and his companions. The argument reportedly turned physical with Hendricks being stabbed 2 times. Following the stabbing, the parties from the BMW fled from the scene.

Hendricks was described as “the most kind, friendly, loving and respectable, son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, uncle, lover and friend. A true gentle giant”
