|According to an article at Boston.com’s Metrodesk, a neighbor was
willing to comment about the incident anonymously. She requested that
she not be named because she feared for her safety.|
She said she saw the victim lying face-up with gunshots to his
abdomen. Police officers attempted to resuscitate the man, but to no
avail. They climbed on top of him to do CPR but he didn’t move.
Homicide detectives were active at 23 Trull St and properties close by
throughout the afternoon and into the evening and cruisers were present
until the area investigation was complete.
