One dead, two others wounded in shootings in Franklin Field, Mattapan

The Boston Police Department reports two people were shot, one fatally, at 10 Orlando St. in Mattapan around 9:10 p.m. on Sunday, followed by another person shot at 92 Westview St. in Franklin Field around 9:40 p.m.

Boston Police say the victim who died in the Orlando Street shooting was 48-year-old Ediwn Pizarro of Mattapan. The second Orlando Street victim and the person shot on Westview Street are expected to survive, police say.

Around 9:45 p.m., three people were shot at Rosa and River streets in Hyde Park, near Mattapan, police add. All are expected to survive.

A Brockton man was arrested for the Westview Street shooting, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office, which says the man became outraged when another motorist rear-ended him at a stop sign and got out and fired several shots into the victim and his SUV.

Aquan Hudson, 24, was charged with armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. A judge in Dorchester Municipal Court ordered him held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing on Wednesday.

According to the DA's office:

"Assistant District Attorney Kaitlin Tolbert said that at about 9:40 p.m. on Sunday Boston police responded to 92 Westview Street to a ShotSpotter notification. Officers found a car with significant front-end damage idling at the intersection of Westview and Ames and a male within suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Investigators collected surveillance video that showed a white SUV slow then stop at a stop sign at the intersections of Westview and Ames. A red SUV followed closely behind and collided with the white SUV. A male with a blue hooded sweatshirt exited the white SUV from the driver’s seat and ran back toward the red SUV. The suspect fired multiple shots at close range at the driver of the red SUV. The suspect then returned to the white SUV and fled."

Based on witness accounts, BPD put out a BOLO for a white Inifiniti with substantial rear-end damage - driven by Hudson. State Troopers, alerted by the bulletin, spotted him and a female companion not long after they showed up in Brockton.
