BOSTON (AP) - Boston police are searching for a gunman who fatally shot a young man in the city’s Dorchester neighborhood.

Police Commissioner William Evans says the shooting on Thursday afternoon followed some kind of verbal confrontation between two motorists near a McDonald’s restaurant on Gallivan Boulevard.

A man in his 20s was taken to a Boston hospital where he later died. His name has not been released.

Evans says the occupant of the other vehicle fled the scene.

The commissioner says investigators were trying to determine what led to the shooting, but that it was too early to characterize it as a road rage incident.

He’s asking anyone with information to contact police.
