The shooting occurred at 8:49 p.m. in the lower busway of Ruggles station. A 20-year-old man was shot in the hand and thigh and fled out onto Tremont Street; a 34-year-old man was hit in the calf. Police said the 34-year-old did not know the other victim and probably was not the target of the shooting.

Both victims were taken to nearby hospitals. Harris was arrested shortly after the shooting, police said.
