NASHUA — Two local men have been indicted in connection with the shooting of a Massachusetts man who survived, but suffered a traumatic brain injury from the incident.

Alexandre Amado, 20, of 15 Kessler Farm Drive., apt. 303, and Anthony Farmer, 20, of 5 Hartford Lane, apt. E., have been indicted by a Hillsborough County Superior Court grand jury for the Jan. 9 shooting outside of 6 Rochette Ave.

The shooting, police said, happened during a drug transaction involving multiple pounds of marijuana and nearly $15,000 in cash.

Danny Vorn, 22, of Lowell, Mass., was allegedly shot in the head by Amado, according to court documents. The gun used in the shooting was allegedly given to Amado by Farmer, according to police.

Authorities say a drug transaction went wrong when the two men involved in the drug deal — Amado and Farmer — allegedly robbed Vorn at gunpoint.

The indictments, handed up this month, allege that Amado shot Vorn in the head and stole a large quantity of marijuana from him.

Amado has been indicted on charges of armed robbery, second- degree assault, attempted falsifying physical evidence and two counts of the sale of a controlled drug to an undercover police officer.

Farmer has been indicted on charges of armed robbery and second- degree assault. Both men are being held on bail and scheduled to be arraigned next month in Hillsborough County Superior Court.

Vorn, who had been hospitalized at Boston Medical Center for weeks after the shooting, has since been released, said Lt. Denis Linehan of the Nashua Police Department.

"He will have to have reconstructive surgery to his skull, and other medical procedures," Linehan said in an email to the New Hampshire Union Leader.

Police previously described the injury as serious, saying Vorn may have permanent impairments because of the gunshot wound to his head.
