Police release photo of SUV in Dorchester homicide
DORCHESTER, Mass. (WHDH) -- Police are trying to piece together the circumstances surrounding a deadly shooting in a Boston neighborhood.
The neighborhood remains on edge as police look for clues into what relatives of the victims have called a “senseless shooting.” On Monday, the families of three shooting victims returned to the scene of the crime looking for answers of their own.
The shooting claimed the lives of three young women. Boston police released a surveillance photo of a white SUV they believe might be tied to Sunday night’s triple murder.
Candles burned in memory of the three women shot and killed sitting in a car on Harlem Street Sunday night. A fourth victim survived.
Boston police are keeping watch on the neighborhood.
A heartbroken Kim Presgod remembered her cousin, 22-year-old Kristen Lartey of Hyde Park, who had just graduated from Saint John’s University in New York last spring.
Relatives also remembered 22-year-old Sharrice Perkins.
“The family is hurt by this senseless violence that seems to take place far too often in this city,” said Rev. Gary Adams, a relative of Perkins.
As police continue their search, residents and relatives of the shaken neighborhood anxiously await answers.
Boston police have increased patrols in the area as they try to track down the shooter. They say the SUV they’re looking for can be identified by its black top and a unique set of halogen and fog lights.
