It happened in the middle of the afternoon on a busy part of Dorchester Ave.

“I heard everything, and when I looked out the window, I saw all the police, and a man lying on the ground with blood pouring out of him,” said Yolanda Gonzalez, who works at a dental office not ten yards away.

Police have not identified the other suspect they’re still looking for, but a family friend of Hendricks said she couldn’t believe he’d open fire on police officers.

“They must not have identified themselves, ’cause I know he wouldn’t shoot at a cop,” said the unidentified friend.

Two years ago, Hendricks was arrested by Boston police after a chase. he was charged with illegal possession of a firearm.
