FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — A father and son died after a late-night shooting Friday at an apartment complex in Framingham, according to the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office.
Just after 11:30 p.m., shots rang out near Second and Beaver Street at Pelham Apartments. James “Manny” Wade, 45, and his son James Wade, 24, both of Framingham, died, according to officials. The son died at the scene, while the father died at MetroWest Medical Center. Officials said they weren’t residents at that apartment complex.
A woman who didn’t want to be identified told Boston 25 News that she saw the men laying on the lawn outside of her front door.
“I’m just worried for my children, that’s it,” she said.
On Saturday morning, a man who tried to light a candle and start a makeshift memorial at the scene said what police told him.
"They just told me the father and the son got killed, he said. He also didn’t want to be named, but said that the men who died were his relatives.
Neighbors said the area is known for open-area drug deals, but police and the DA didn’t comment on the circumstances surrounding the shootings.
Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer released a statement on Sunday regarding the shooting, saying:
