A man who was shot Tuesday evening in Quincy, Massachusetts, has died from his injuries, Norfolk County District Attorney Michael Morrissey announced.
Quincy officers were called to Taffrail Road around 6:30 p.m. for a report of shots fired. Responding officers noticed a vehicle leaving the area and followed it a short distance away to Palmer Street, where they found a young man with apparent gunshot wounds, Morrissey said at a press conference late Tuesday night.
The victim was taken with a life-threatening injury to Boston Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.
Morrissey said the victim was behind the wheel when police found him, but it was not immediately clear if anyone else was in the vehicle at the time.
