Valet charged with shooting co-worker to death on Boston Street

A Hyde Park man was arraigned today on charges he shot Daniel Taylor to death on Boston Street early on Feb. 22.

Smith, 23, of Hyde Park, was ordered held without bail at his arraignment in South Boston District Court, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Prosecutors say the two men attended a work-related party downtown that night:

"They left the event together with Taylor driving a family member’s vehicle.

"While driving through Dorchester, Smith and Taylor became engaged in an argument. This came to a head in the area of Boston and Howell streets, where Taylor exited the vehicle and pulled Smith from the passenger’s side. Their verbal argument became a physical confrontation. At some point, prosecutors say, Smith produced a firearm and shot Taylor repeatedly before fleeing on foot in the direction of Andrew station."
