It all happened at an intersection right near a gas station where employees witnessed the scene.
“A couple of my coworkers were outside and they heard it. They thought it was a backfire from the dirt bikes and then they saw the scene in the commotion and everything and then they found out it was a gunshot and came in and told me,” a gas station employee told WBZ. “The poor guy. He is 77. I don’t know whose fault it was but there’s no need for violence like that at all.”
