Man Believed To Be I-93 Shooter Arrested On Unrelated Charges

BOSTON (CBS) – A man suspected in the shooting of two motorcyclists on Interstate 93 in Dorchester has been arrested on unrelated charges, according to WBZ-TV’s Cheryl Fiandaca.

Lance Holloman, 30, of Dorchester, was acting erratically and detained in Franklin early Monday morning on a probation violation involving gun charges.

On Sunday around 5 p.m., a father and son were riding their motorcycles in the southbound lanes when they were shot near Exit 12, the exit to Route 3A south.

Police believe the shots were fired from a red Jeep Renegade, which took off with two people inside down 93 south after the shooting.

The son, a 32-year-old from East Taunton, is in critical condition at Boston Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

The father, a 54-year-old from Raynham, is at Tufts Medical Center with serious injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening, according to State Police.

The men, who have not been identified by authorities, were driving home from a baby shower, a relative told WBZ-TV, when the father was shot in the back and the son in the head.

Police say it’s still too early in the investigation to discuss a possible motive.

State police said they found the Jeep unoccupied overnight in Dorchester.

“We have the car inside a secure facility for processing. We are not allowing for it to be photographed. Please inform the public that we are no longer asking for its assistance in locating the suspect vehicle,” State Police spokesman Dave Procopio said in a statement Monday morning.

Sources told Fiandaca that the SUV was rented by Holloman’s girlfriend two days earlier.

Later Sunday night, she was shot and killed in her apartment on Santuit Street in Dorchester. The I-Team has learned Holloman is also a person of interest in that case.

According to Franklin police, there were three arrest warrants connected to Holloman when he was picked up there.

Holloman has not been formally charged in connection to either shooting.  Sources say he is associated with a street gang.

Anyone with information is asked to call State Police.
