BOSTON (CBS) – Police are searching for the gunman who shot and killed a man as he sat in a car in Hyde Park late Saturday afternoon.

Boston Police said the shooter ran up to the victim as he sat in a car on Frazer Avenue, fired multiple shots, and ran away.

“Clearly the victim was targeted here. We have an individual running up to the passenger side and firing multiple rounds at the victim, so it’s clearly not a random act,” Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said at the scene.
