Police yesterday charged a Dorchester man with shooting a teenager in the back as the kid attempted to run away from him on June 26.
Police say that after shooting the teen at Nightingale and Wales streets around 2:50 p.m., Gevaughn Clark, 21, of Dorchester, got back in his car and, while attempting to put his gun in his pocket, managed to fire a shot into his own leg. They say he showed up later in the day at Carney Hospital with a bullet hole that started on his right hip and ended on the other side of his right leg:
Gevaughn Clark had stated that he got shot at the corner of Wales St. and Nightingale St. but stated he was walking to his car not driving.
Police say an investigation showed otherwise and that they recovered the bullet from the floor of his car. The teen's injuries were not life threatening.
