BOSTON (AP) — A man accused of fatally shooting two innocent bystanders outside a city housing complex earlier this month is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
Wilvin Guity faces two counts of murder in the May 4 shooting deaths of 23-year-old Christopher Joyce and 58-year-old Clayborn Blair. Guity was arrested Saturday.
Police say the victims were in a group of people who had gathered outside at the Mildred Hailey Apartments in the city’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood.
Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans says he thinks the victims were the unintended targets of gang violence.
Joyce was scheduled to graduate from Salem State University this month.
Relatives say Blair was a father of three.
The 28-year-old Guity, of Dorchester, is in custody and it’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
