A 26-year-old man died Thursday night after he was shot in the head and chest on a Logan street corner, police said.
The victim was at 11th Street and Somerville Avenue -- about a block from Albert Einstein Medical Center -- shortly after 9:30 p.m. when someone opened fire on him, according to police.
Several people called 9-1-1 to report hearing gunshots, and when officers arrived at the scene, they saw cars driving around the victim as he lay in the street bleeding, Chief Inspector Scott Small said. The officers quickly scooped the victim up and took him to Einstein, but the man was pronounced dead there less than a half-hour later.
Small said police had not located any witnesses to the shooting about 11 p.m., but investigators did find a surveillance camera on a business in the area pointing toward where the victim fell. They were working to recover that video late Thursday. The neighborhood is mostly residential.
No ballistic evidence was found at the scene, Small said, but a pool of blood and cellphone believed to be the victim's marked the spot where he collapsed.
