Ryan Morrissey, who was 17, was at the A1 Convenience Store in November of 2014 when the three men allegedly mistook him for someone else and shot him in the chest. The men also shot at Morrissey's 19-year-old friend Jamie Lawton.

"There was just a lot of shots I heard," said Lawton. "Through the hand, through my hips, my bicep and my elbow."

In court, prosecutors say Baez planned the crime and drove the getaway car and Alex Soto and Danilo Soto, who are not related, were the shooters.

The three suspects have childhood ties to Charlestown. Lawton testified he and Morrissey played baseball with Alex Soto when they were younger, but they had not seen him for years. Lawton also talked about seeing his friend on the ground, gasping for air.

"I seen him under the car and I just started yelling for somebody to call an ambulance," said Lawton.

After opening statements, the jurors left the courthouse in a bus to go see the crime scene in Charlestown firsthand.

Prosecutors say they can put all three near the crime scene based on fingerprints in the getaway car and phone records.

"Cell site location information also known as cell towers placed them in the very small area of Charlestown between 9 and 10 p.m. The shooting was at 9:40 p.m.

The trial will resume Thursday morning.
