BOSTON (AP) — Police say someone deliberately shot and killed a man as he walked across the rear parking lot of a supermarket in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood.

The victim was rushed to a hospital after the noontime shooting Wednesday but he later died.

Police Commissioner William Evans told reporters the victim was in his 20s. His name was not immediately released.

Investigators said it appears the man was deliberately targeted.

Police were searching the neighborhood for a suspect Wednesday evening.
