Authorities released video footage today that shows a man pacing around outside Who's on First bar before a deadly shooting that left a Haitian-American man dead last November. Boston Police need help identifying the man, who is shown wearing a camouflage-print jacket and lurking near the entrance to the Yawkey Way bar before the deadly gunfire began.
Jepthe Chery, 30, was shot to death in the gunfight that erupted just after 2 a.m. on Nov. 26, 2015. Police and prosecutors say Chery was an innocent bystander to the incident. Three other people were wounded, but survived. One of those injured, Dominique Carpenter-Grady, has been indicted on illegal gun charges.
Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans and Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley issued a joint statement today asking for help in IDing the person of interest shown here. Anyone with information on his identity, the shootings, or Chery's homicide is asked to contact Boston Police homicide detectives at 617-343-4470. Tipsters who wish to remain anonymous may also call the Boston Police CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1-800-494-TIPS or text the word "TIP" to CRIME (27463).
