“There were two other individuals in the victim’s vehicle who fled the scene and have left before police arrived. We want to make sure they’re okay, and obviously we want to talk to them about what they saw and any information they have relative to this investigation,” said Superintendent Dan Linskey of the Boston Police Department.
Authorities believe the gunman fired the shots from a gray SUV with Rhode Island plates before fleeing the scene.
Police stopped a nearby street-sweeper to see if any evidence had been collected.
Officers also searched outside area buildings for possible surveillance cameras that may have captured the crime on tape.MORE NEWS: Moderna Says Its COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids 6-11 Has 'Strong Immune Response'
