They said security cameras caught Hall and Shakespeare involved in an argument. After witnesses heard gunshots, Hall was found shot several times in the building’s parking lot.

Shakespeare was tracked to the Bronx, where he has family. He was taken into custody by Boston Police, US Marshals, and the NYPD there on January 31.
