Gunman Sought After Confrontation Leads To Fatal Shooting In Dorchester

BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Boston police are searching for a gunman who shot and killed a young man in Dorchester Thursday, in what sources tell WBZ-TV appears to be a case of road rage.

Police Commissioner William Evans says the afternoon shooting followed some kind of verbal confrontation between two drivers near a McDonald’s restaurant on Gallivan Boulevard.

A man in his 20s was taken to a Boston hospital where he later died. His name has not been released.

Evans says the occupant of the other vehicle fled the scene.

The commissioner says investigators were trying to determine what led to the shooting.

He’s asking anyone with information to contact police.

“We need the public’s help,” Evans said. “I’m sure there was plenty of people out here. Sort of brazen for a shooting out here that time of day.”

  1. If there is camera’s in the area either the traffic light or on buildings those should be checked. I noticed a car driving erratically around the same time yesterday in the area.
