Immediately after the shots rang out, Paulo Barros’s car stopped near the intersection of Fox Street and Mt. Ida Road. The 22-year-old man shot dead Monday night was the fifth homicide in Dorchester’s Cape Verdean community this year.
In a three-decker less than 10 feet from where his car came to rest that evening, mourners were gathered at the home of Adilson Barros, 23, who had been shot dead on Bowdoin Street early Saturday. Amadeu Barros, Adilson’s father, said yesterday that he believes the two Barros families are related, but that he is not sure how.
