man shot in Southie
The heat can make people do some crazy things. On Tuesday afternoon, a man decided to open fire at two Boston police officers after being questioned about selling drugs in the neighborhood. According to the Boston police, a call came in for a woman smoking crack near the Mary Ellen McCormack housing development. The officers went to the area and cited the woman and got a description of the person who sold her the crack cocaine.
Minutes later the officers found the man who fit the description at 375 Old Colony Ave. When confronted by the police, the suspect ran and then fired three shots in their direction. Police returned fire and shot the man in the chest. The man was then rushed to Tufts Medical Center for treatment.
Stay safe Southie!
