Less than three months after the shooting death of 22-year-old Kevin Reyes of Boston, Boston Police Homicide Detectives are asking for the public’s help in an effort to identify a person of interest who may have been in the area at the time of the incident and, as a result, is wanted for questioning.
On Saturday, May 27, 2017, officers from District A-1 (Downtown) responded to a call for a person shot in the area of 66 Hudson Street. On arrival, officers observed a male victim suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The victim, Kevin Reyes, was transported to an area hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.
In the days and weeks after the homicide, Boston Police Homicide Detectives apprehended two individuals in connection to the homicide.
