Boston Police Seek Public's Help Finding Murder Suspect

The Boston Police Department is asking the public for help in locating a man wanted in connection to a fatal shooting that occurred in the city's Dorchester neighborhood last month.

Authorities say Ricardo Jamesy Washington, 24, of Roxbury, is wanted on an outstanding warrant sought out of Dorchester District Court on charges of murder and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Numerous police vehicles and investigators responded to the area of 66 Milton Ave. on May 8 after authorities said police received a call around 10:05 a.m. for a person shot.

"On arrival, police found an inside scene. They found an adult male with wounds," said Boston police Superintendent Paul Donovan.

Boston EMS responded and declared the man dead at the scene. He was identified as 24-year-old Donell Davis of Boston.

Police looked for surveillance video from a nearby house.

"I've been living here four years," said one neighbor. "It is quiet. I always walk up and down here. No problem."
