WBZ-TV reports :
The District Attorney’s Office reported that a person driving a Bentley shot a driver in a red Dodge SUV. The victim, identified by Duxbury EMS as a man in his 40s, got out of his vehicle and received a ride to the Duxbury police station. From there, that victim was taken by EMS to South Shore Hospital. Police say he suffered non-life threatening injuries.
According to the Duxbury Police Department, the suspect was taken into custody shortly after the shooting. No other suspects are being sought.
Benzino is in my prayers along with his family at this time. This type of nonsense between family is really crazy and very sad. Whatever the situation is it’s never that serious to take someone’s life.
