Shooting suspect deemed armed and dangerous still at large
Police said Ty-shon Perry, 20, was shot to death Saturday while visiting his relatives. Police are still investigating but family members say Perry was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Now police are looking for the shooter. Police warn the suspect, Justice Andrade, is armed and dangerous.
The 20-year-old man is described as 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 45 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
Police said he is the suspect who fired shots here on Allston Street early Saturday morning, killing Perry.
Because police have not recovered the weapon, they said Andrade should be considered armed and dangerous.
A relative of Perry's told NBC 10, "I hope he gets caught, and gets life without parole I don't with death on anybody but he deserves to serve time, whoever he was looking for may or may not have been at that house, but Ty did not have anything to do with it at all," said Felicia Sanders.
Police said they know the location was targeted by the shooter, but that does not mean Perry necessarily was the target.
Candles and flowers mark the spot where his life was taken.
Family calls Perry a good man, great father, with a promising future. Perry had passed the written exam for the state police and wanted to pursue law enforcement as a career.
He was supposed to start a new job with Pepsi Monday, according to his family. Now, his family can only keep his memory alive, for his 1-year-old son who will grow up without his father.
"He was there for my grandson every single day and now Amari doesn't have that, he now he just has us to tell him, how good his father was," said Sanders.
Perry would have turned 21 next month; his mother had been planning a party to celebrate. Instead she is planning her son's funeral.
