Stunning surveillance footage shows man shot, run over by car in Dorchester

BOSTON — Surveillance footage shows the disturbing aftermath of a shooting that ended with a wounded man being run over.

It happened on Everton Street in Dorchester around 3:45 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.

A neighbor’s security camera captured the sound of at least one gunshot. The video shows the apparent shooting victim falling to the ground in front of an idled vehicle.

Seconds later, the car is seen moving and driving over the wounded man.

Witnesses told Boston 25 News they believe the driver was spooked by the gunfire and did not see the man on the ground.

“They didn’t know he fell in front of the car when they ran him over,” said neighbor Angela Sam. “I’m trembling because I’ve never seen anything like that live and knew I had to call the police.”

The video shows the car eventually stopping. Several people in the area then rush over to help the man who was badly hurt.

Those witnesses can be seen dragging the injured man out of frame.

“From what I was told, he was thrown in the car and they rushed him off to the hospital,” said neighbor Jalisa Carter. “I’m a bag of water. I cried.”

Investigators are still piecing the ordeal together. Police expect the victim will recover from his injuries.

As of Sunday night, no arrests had been announced and police had no additional information.

Sunday afternoon’s incident added to what’s been a violent holiday weekend across the city of Boston.

Boston Police confirmed that at least seven unrelated shootings occurred between Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Each of those victims suffered injuries believed to be non-life threatening.

Police also confirmed that three victims had been stabbed during a large brawl on Saturday night in the area of Roberts Park in Dorchester. Those victims are also expected to recover.
