The District Attorney noted:

“Multiple witnesses on scene described that an altercation took place in a picnic area of the park between the victim and John Geovanni Pires Monteiromacedo, 20, prior to the shooting.”

“Upon arrival, Plymouth Police and first responders located the male victim, and he was transported to Beth Israel Deaconess-Plymouth Hospital where he was pronounced dead of his injuries.”
