November 06, 2003|From Associated Press

BOSTON — A shooting at a city bus station Wednesday killed one person, wounded four others and sent bystanders screaming and running for cover. Police said the alleged gunman was arrested.

Boston Police Supt. James Hussey said the shooting appeared to be random. He said it started outside a convenience store near the Dudley Square bus station in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood, then ended up inside the station, where officers wrestled the suspect to the ground.

Police said one man, believed to be in his 50s, was killed in the shooting. One of the wounded was in critical condition, Hussey said. The victims' identities were not immediately released.

Police identified the suspect as Lamar Tillery, 34, of the Roxbury neighborhood.

Tillery was scheduled to be arraigned today on charges including murder, said a Suffolk County district attorney spokesman.
