Authorities are searching for two men wanted in the drive-by-shooting that left another man dead Sunday afternoon in Norwood, Massachusetts.

Shakim Lewis-Johnson, a 28-year-old from Boston's Hyde Park neighborhood, was shot multiple times outside of a car as he left a friend's house on Sturtevant Avenue around 5 p.m. that day.

Police and the Norfolk County District Attorney's Office said Friday that they are searching for 27-year-old Ernest Payne of Cambridge and 25-year-old Anthony Loper-Feaster of Salem, both wanted on murder charges.

"We believe these men are still armed," said District Attorney Michael Morrisey said.

A search Friday morning in Cambridge for the suspects came up empty-handed.

Investigators are also looking for a rented white 2014 Honda Accord with New Hampshire plates reading "4855328."

"Law enforcement has been actively searching for them," said Morrissey.

Norwood police found Lewis-Johnson alive but wounded at the scene. He was flown in a medical helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital, but did not survive emergency surgery, the prosecutors said Monday.

Neighbors said they were watching the New England Patriots game and heard between six and eight gunshots. They said they initially thought it was just fireworks.

"You can see this is a nice quiet neighborhood, hard working people, and obviously they’re disturbed by what’s occurred here. Sorry they had to go through this and this happened,” he said.

Local and state police have been investigating the shooting.
