Son of Boston minister charged in shooting stands by dad
BOSTON (AP) — The son of a Boston minister and former public high school employee charged with shooting a 17-year-old student calls the allegations against his father “nonsense.”
The Rev. Shaun Harrison has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and also faces drug and firearms charges.
Authorities say the 55-year-old Harrison was leading a “double life” as a youth mentor and anti-violence activist, even as he was allegedly involved in the drug trade. He had allegedly enlisted the student to deliver marijuana. Harrison was fired from his job at English High School after the shooting.
His son, Jeremy Harrison, tells the Boston Herald (http://bit.ly/1b1B3y7 ) that “the truth is going to come out” about his father.
Jeremy Harrison is facing his own legal troubles for the non-fatal shooting of his girlfriend, which he says was accidental.
