(BOSTON HERALD) The mothers of two teenage boys accused of gunning down a Dorchester teen last week are being applauded by city officials and community leaders for turning them in when they learned their kids were wanted in connection with the murder.
“The mothers were very good here, I have to commend them,” Boston police Commissioner William B. Evans said yesterday as he announced that a 14-year-old and a 16-year-old had been arrested in connection with the shooting death of Jonathan Dos Santos, 16, who was killed as he rode his bicycle Wednesday night near the corner of Fuller and Washington streets.
“They were made aware of their sons and they worked with our homicide detectives to bring their kids to us so they could be taken into custody,” Evans said. “It’s sad, the poor mothers — obviously that’s a tough one for them to deal with.”
