A mid-afternoon shooting erupted across from the entrance of Ronan Park on Monday, according to neighbors. Six to nine shots were fired at a car around 4 p.m. on Mt. Ida Road. The targeted vehicle, a black sedan, crashed into two parked cars. The broad-daylight incident drew a swift and massive police response.
Two people who were in the car jumped out and ran off, leaving behind a person in the crashed car, neighbors said. The person, a female, appeared to be shaken but uninjured, according to one neighbor who spoke to the Reporter.
Boston Police observed a light-skinned female running toward the black sedan and picked up a purse, according to the police report. She said she was the driver, and when she heard the shots, she panicked and hit two cars.
Witnesses told police they saw a Toyota sedan, with New York plates, leaving the scene with four black males inside.
Two cars, aside from the black sedan, were also hit with bullets, and the front windows of a second floor apartment on Mt. Ida Road were also hit. Nobody was hurt inside.
