Man shot to death at Dudley station

Courtney Jackson

Updated Friday morning.

A man shot in the stomach around 9:50 p.m. at the Dudley MBTA station was pronounced dead not long after at Boston Medical Center. WBZ reports the man was shot in the station, then stumbled onto a crowded 28 bus.

Friends are identifying him as Will Jack, also known as Courtney Jackson.

Brian Cooper, 25, and Jamel Bannister, 22, are scheduled for arraignment today in Roxbury District Court on murder and firearms charges, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. Both were nabbed not long after the shooting by Boston Police officers working a detail nearby. Transit Police say the shooting was not random - the pair targeted Jackson.

The T sent in a bus to transport 50 witnesses to Boston Police headquarters on Tremont Street for questioning. Every available detective in the city was ordered there to talk to the witnesses; officers were also brought in to take witnesses home.

In addition to murder and firearms charges, both also face charges of being armed career criminals, the District Attorney's office reports Bannister for drug and assault charges in 2009 and 2011 and Cooper for armed assault with intent to murder in 2007.

This is Boston's fifth or sixth murder this year, depending on the outcome of the I-93 body investigation.

Innocent, etc.

I'd like to argue with you

I have no clue who you are though.

I also hope you're this pissed off when a judge let's the suspects go with a very low bail, and hope that anger continues when a jury gives them a light jail sentence.

It is sad this person died. Someone cared about them, they had a family, and as I suggested before, they were most likely shot over something which will come to be known as incredibly stupid. I say that because I can't think of a good reason to shoot someone. Especially on a crowded bus.

Murder last July 29th near the Aquairum

Are all the fish evacuating? No. I call BS on your school department evacuation plan from Dudley.

Also, this happened at 945 at night. What is the chance that a school worker from BPS would be working anywhere in the city, other than a late HS related event at that time of day?

That being said, the weather is starting to get slightly warmer. Like Afghanistan, when the snow melts the guns come out over certain parts of our fair city.

When the first happens it's blamed on a violent nature and disregard for life and when the second happens it's Kevin Spacey having a midlife crisis?

The people who work in BPS HQ are having shit-fits as we speak. The talk around the water cooler is early retirement and Florida.
