It wasn’t yet clear whether or not he was shot while inside the car. A car was towed from the scene.

Neighbors told WBZ NewsRadio’s Karyn Regal that it was just a typical Fourth of July, and they said they heard no arguments or gunshots.


“Just fireworks…everybody was outside, having fun,” one area resident said.

Police said it wasn’t clear if the man was originally shot on Homestead Street.

No arrests have yet been made.
