Victims’ kin seek answers in shooting

The two men were not involved in gangs, did not have criminal records, police say

As a tour guide on the idyllic island of Boa Vista in Cape Verde, Safiro Furtado led a mostly European clientele on jaunts along silky sand dunes, whispering palm trees, and world-class beaches, his family said. He arrived in Dorchester five months ago to reconnect with his mother and sister, whom he had not seen in a decade.

Daniel Abreu grew up in Cape Verde, worked as a police officer there, and arrived in Dorchester four years ago, his relatives said. Abreu, 29, and Furtado, 28, became friends and worked together for a cleaning company based on Hamilton Street in Dorchester.
