‘Whitey’ Bulger trial

Alleged ‘Whitey’ Bulger victim tells of ambush

Says he was ambushed by a ‘firing squad’

There was the son whose father was gunned down inside a Medford coffee shop on the boy’s 14th birthday, the widow who knew something was wrong when her husband suddenly vanished, and the terrified gambler who was shot within an inch of his heart.

All three were called to testify Friday at the racketeering trial of James “Whitey” Bulger in US District Court as prosecutors brought more witnesses before the jury on the eighth day of testimony in an effort to show the human toll of the gangster’s alleged crimes.
