Mack was ordered held without bail at his arraignment in Dorchester court on Friday, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports:

Assistant District Attorney Julie Higgins said surveillance video and witness accounts showed Mack and Gavin arriving in the Ellington Street area at about 7:30 pm in a car driven by Gavin. Mack, who was 18 at the time of the shooting, then left the vehicle and fired multiple shots at a group of individuals, including Curtis Ashford, gathered on Ellington Street. The group fled upon hearing the shots. Ashford was hit while trying to get away, Higgins said.
