The Suffolk County Grand Jury indicted three men yesterday with a total of 23 offenses related to last fall’s fatal shooting in Mattapan that left four, including a 2-year-old boy, dead.

Dwayne Moore, 33, of Mattapan and Edward Washington, 31, of Dorchester were each charged with four counts of first-degree murder and single counts of aggravated assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, armed assault with intent to murder, armed home invasion, armed robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm. Moore was also indicted on drug trafficking charges.

Kimani Washington, 35, of Dorchester was indicted on charges of armed carjacking, armed home invasion, armed robbery, unlawful possession of a firearm, drug possession with intent to distribute and drug trafficking.

“These indictments reflect a herculean effort by Boston Police homicide detectives and Suffolk prosecutors who would not rest until the truth of these horrible crimes was known,” Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said yesterday in a statement. “Our goal now is to prove the charges in court beyond a reasonable doubt and find justice for the friends, families, and community the victims left behind.”

The Woolson Street shooting on Sept. 28 claimed the lives of Eyanna Flonory, 21, of Dorchester and her 2-year-old son, Amanihotep Smith. Also killed were Simba Martin, 21, of Dorchester and LeVaughn Washum-Garrison, 22, of Roslindale. Marcus Hurd, 32, of Dorchester survived his injuries.

Kimani Washington is being held on $500,000 cash bail and will face arraignment at the Suffolk Superior Court on Tuesday. Moore and Edward Washington are being held without bail and will be arraigned separately in the near future.
