He was rushed to Boston Medical Center in critical condition and later died.  He was the father of two girls.

Police Supt. William Gross said they are looking for a black man in a blue Hawaiian shirt who ran onto Clarendon Street towards Tremont Street.

Investigators do not believe the shooting was random.

They plan on searching local stores and apartment complexes for video surveillance.

The cameras on Boylston Street were crucial in identifying the Boston Marathon bombings suspects.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Boston Police at (617) 343-5619.
