Man, 32, dies after being shot while riding motorcycle with father

Massachusetts State Police say Scott M. Stevens Jr. (right) succumbed to his injuries, while his father, a 54-year-old man from Raynham, suffered serious injuries, but is expected to survive.

A 32-year-old East Taunton man who was shot while riding his motorcycle alongside his father on the Southeast Expressway in Dorchester has died, according to authorities.

Massachusetts State Police on Tuesday night said Scott M. Stevens Jr. succumbed to his injuries.

Stevens’ father, a 54-year-old man from Raynham, suffered serious injuries, but is expected to survive. The shooting shut down Interstate 93 south near exit 12 for several hours on Sunday.

Justin Hauck grew up with Steven, and they attended Bridgewater Raynham Regional High School. Hauck said Stevens set up a good life for himself and had a bright future.

“He was one of the nicest kids you could ever meet,” Hauck said. “He’s probably been in the union 11 years. He’s a really hard worker.”

Hauck said Stevens was an only child and extremely close with his father. He said the two were heading home from a baby shower when they were shot.

“They were very close. He and his father did everything together. They used to take me fishing. They got rid of the boat and got into bikes. They are a very close family,” Hauck said, also calling the violence senseless.

Boston media outlets reported that 30-year-old Lance Holloman of Dorchester was arrested in connection to the incident. But police said Holloman has not been charged in the shooting.

According to Boston media sources, Holloman is also a person of interest in a fatal shooting of a Boston woman.

Authorities reported two men were in the red Jeep Renegade that fired at the motorcyclists. They believe the men traveled onto Route 28.

Police recovered the Jeep overnight and said it was being processed in a secure location.

Police said it is too early in the investigation to discuss a possible motive.

Hauck said Stevens’ family, friends and co-workers are doing what they can to comfort each other and raise money for the family.

“It’s tough,” he said. “There were so many good times we’ve had over the years. We are just trying to stay positive and think about all of that. Reminisce on the good times.”
