WFXT reports two men were shot, one fatally, in a fight outside the Cure Lounge on Tremont Street shortly after 2 a.m. on Sunday.
Boston Police had earlier asked the public for any photos or videos of the brawl during which Michael Miranda, 28, and a father of two, was shot, but had not mentioned the gunfire.
Miranda's sisters have posted a GoFundMe page seeking funds to create a foundation to promote peace in the Cape Verdean community. They add:
He didn't deserve to die. he was a great guy and a great dad.
He meant everything to us.
Our brother was trying to defend a friend after a robbery, when a group of men decided to shoot two innocent people in close range.
They ended Michael's dreams, but he has fueled ours.
We loved him so much, we as a family decided to Baptize Mikey and pay his love forward by choosing to donate his organs, so that we may one day meet the people he will save.
To date, he has given 8 people a chance at a new life and more time with their loved ones.
