Friends are identifying the person found shot to death on Rowe Street in Roslindale late Thursday as Brandon John, 18, a senior at Madison Park Technical Vocational High School.
John, scheduled to graduate this spring, was one of a number of Madison Park students who walked out of class last year to protest a BPS decision to place headmaster Queon Jackson on leave because of a federal fraud investigation. The Globe quoted John:
Heâ€™s a great person. He kept me out of trouble.
John posted a message to his Facebook page barely 40 minutes before police found his bullet-riddled body Thursday night:
Ha I'm glad niggas don't know who I fuck with in these streets so nigga it's better when we come for you bitch.
