WHDH: The child injured in a Fourth of July shooting in Boston was shot by her father and uncle, according to court documents released Monday. A judge in Roxbury District Court set bail at $30,000 for Ian King, 28, and Nathas Jacquecine, 31, both of Dorchester, following their arrests Friday at two different locations in Mattapan on charges including assault to murder, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, and unlawful possession of a firearm. Officers responding to the intersection of Folson and Dudley streets on July 4 around 11 p.m. found a man and a child suffering from apparent gunshot wounds in a crowd of about 50 people who had gathered to celebrate the holiday, prosecutors said.
The 35-year-old man, who prosecutors say was the intended target, was taken to a local hospital, where he remains after suffering life-threatening injuries. The young girl got stuck in the crossfire and was hit in the foot, prosecutors said. She was treated and released from the hospital. Investigators used surveillance cameras to track down the two suspects but their attorneys claim it is not King and Jacquecine in the video. However, the child’s mother allegedly identified Jacquecine and King, according to court documents, and said they were her daughter’s father and brother.
“Oh my god, you’re kidding me,” the mother allegedly told police.
King is an employee at the Department of Youth Services, and has been suspended and placed on unpaid administrative leave, a DYS spokesperson said. King and Jacquecine are scheduled to appear in court again on Aug. 15.
A DYS worker shooting at a rival in a public park on the 4th of July who accidentally shoots his own niece, alongside her father? Color me shocked. By the looks of Ian King’s Facebook page he totally didn’t seem like he was into the ghettofab life.
Definitely the kind of guy I would want to hire to work with at risk youth in Boston. Never could’ve seen this one coming.
The funny part is that this is exactly the kind of guy that DA Rachael Rollins based her campaign on. The “reformed” douchebag from Dorchester who wants to give back to the community by lecturing up and coming shitheads about how to not end up like him. That and the fact that clearly his politics were the right politics. He wants to abolish the electoral college.
Rename high schools.
And ironically improve safety for DYS workers and clients.
But you throw a shirt and tie on a career shithead like this…..
And get his chinstrap touched up…..
And the next thing you know a government agency is giving him a paycheck to work with kids and try to turn him into Dorchester Chris Herren. Maybe in the future they actually look at people’s social media accounts before hiring them. Just a thought.
