BOSTON (CBS) — At least one person was shot in Dorchester, police confirmed. Everton Street was blocked off by crime-scene tape around 3:45 p.m.

Angela Sam was outside picking up a package when she saw a man get shot. “All I heard was pow like a firecracker and I looked down the street to see the guy on the floor, the car roll over him, the guy speed off a little bit, throw him in the back seat, drive off,” Sam told WBZ-TV. “I’m trembling because I have never seen something like that live.”

Jalisa Carter was also nearby at the time. “I heard one pow and then I could hear the commotion of everybody screaming saying ‘run, get out of here’ and my main focus was I knew that my son was outside,” she said.

Witnesses said the man was alert and talking as he was pulled into the car. According to police, the man has non-life-threatening injuries and is in stable condition.

Police said the car that drove over the man was driven by the victim’s friends, not the shooter. The driver is not being charged at this time. When police found the car on Brockford Street, they took over and brought the victim to the hospital.

No arrests have been made.
