A gray or silver SUV, with Rhode Island license plates, was seen speeding away from the scene of a double-murder in Boston early Monday morning. It happened along Shawmut Avenue in the South End, around 2:30 in the morning.
Witnesses tell police the SUV pulled up along side a BMW and someone inside the SUV opened fire. The driver and front seat passenger in the BMW were killed, and one passenger in the back seat was wounded. Two other people in the back seat of the BMW ran away from the scene, and police are hoping they will come forward.
Police in Rhode Island were warned to be on the lookout for a silver or gray SUV with Rhode Island plates, but there are many vehicles with that description on the road so it may be difficult to find.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Boston Police Homicide Unit at (617) 343-4470.
