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.
