Somebody was shot around 6:45 p.m. at the Parkman Bandstand. A suspect ran into the Park Street MBTA station and then onto the Green Line tracks towards Boylston Street. Boston Police officers and state troopers ran onto the tracks after him.
The homicide unit was called in due to the severity of the victim's injuries. Green Line service was halted.
Police were also looking for two possible suspects on Vespas. All three suspects are in custody. One was nabbed near Park Square, the other at Pearl and High streets.

Emerson College told its students to shelter in place, which David Finnerty knows because he found a phone on the Common somebody left when they ran on hearing the gunfire and it turned out to belong to an Emerson student and he saw the alert come in.
