Man Formally Charged In I-93 Shootings, Dorchester Murder

BOSTON (CBS) — A Dorchester man has been formally charged in connection to a shooting on I-93 South that left one man dead and another injured, and the fatal shooting of a 24-year-old woman in Dorchester.

Officials say that 30-year-old Lance Holloman shot Scott M. Stevens, 32, of East Taunton, and Stevens’ 54-year-old father while they rode their motorcycles on I-93 on Sunday. They were on their way home from a family event.

Scott Stevens says they were riding together and he was riding slightly ahead of his son.

“I heard a couple of gunshots, looked in the mirror and saw my son going across the highway. Next thing I know is the guy is on top of and shot me,” the father said.

Scott Stevens was shot in the head and died from his injuries on Tuesday. His father was shot in the back and he is out of the hospital.

The father says he has no idea why they were targeted. He also said the pain is unbelievable.

“You can’t put it into words. It’s unimaginable,” the older Stevens said.

Later Sunday night, police found Holloman’s friend, Michaela Gingras, dead inside her home on Santuit Street in Dorchester.

Her family says she struggled with drug abuse but was finally turning around her life. Friend Emily Butler says Gingras’ death is also tragic.

“It breaks my heart thinking about what happened and what she went through,” Butler said.

Holloman was arrested by Franklin Police for three outstanding warrants after a car crash early Monday morning.

According to the District Attorney, one of the warrants “charged unlawful possession of a firearm for a May 31 incident in which he allegedly directed another person to throw a loaded handgun from a vehicle while fleeing a traffic stop.”

During his arraignment Monday, Holloman had his $150,000 cash bail revoked for 60 days because of an unrelated pending case charging assault and battery and animal cruelty. An additional $500 was added to bail for a charge of driving with a suspended license.

He has now been charged with murder, armed assault with intent to murder, and other offenses. His arraignment has not yet been scheduled.
