Boston Police today identified the man shot to death on Centre Street in Jamaica Plain as Kenny Lamour, 21, of Hyde Park.
Lamour had ridden in a van to the Arborway rotary to do snow cleanup as part of a "transitional employment program" organized by Roca, Inc., which tries to steer young people with troubled pasts away from violence.
In 2011, Lamour, then living at a DYS facility in Roslindale, was charged with stomping a DYS worker after another facility resident beat the worker to the ground in a dispute. He was convicted and sentenced to 2 1/2 years in a county jail, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.
Lamour's alleged killer, Josiah Zachery, 18, of Hyde Park, is scheduled for arraignment today in West Roxbury Municipal Court on charges of both murder and assault with a dangerous weapon on a police officer for allegedly firing at an officer who chased him.
