BOSTON (AP) - Police have identified the man killed in a shooting outside a bar near Fenway Park as a commuter rail conductor for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.

Police say Jephthe Chery was killed and three others wounded early Thursday in the shooting. It happened a few hours before thousands of fans were to arrive at Fenway for Thanksgiving Day high school football games.

Chery would have turned 30 on Friday. The MBTA says he was “beloved and respected by his friends and colleagues on the railroad.”

Police say it appears he may have been an innocent bystander. No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.

This is the second shooting outside a bar near Fenway in recent months. In September, two women were wounded in another shooting.
