Paul Ronan told WBZ-TV his family is shocked by his son’s violent death and he doesn’t know who would have wanted to hurt him.

“It’s not an easy time for them,” Ronan’s uncle Rich Angelo told reporters Tuesday.

“He’ll be sorely missed by everyone that knew him.”

Neighbors say Ronan’s parents were not home at the time of the shooting, but his grandfather was there.

Police are looking for a suspect described as a white man in a dark-colored SUV or van.
