SUV possibly linked to Expressway shooting of father and son located, State Police say

State Police have located the SUV they believe is linked to the violent incident on Southeast Expressway where a father and son were shot as they rode on their own motorcycles in Boston on Sunday.

The vehicle is undergoing forensic examination by law enforcement at a secured location and State Police are not allowing it to be photographed by the media, State Police spokesman David Procopio wrote in an e-mail Monday.

The vehicle was unoccupied when police recovered it.

The vehicle may lead investigators to the person responsible for opening fire on the two men – a 54-year-old Raynham resident and a 32 year-old Taunton resident – while they were traveling south on the Expressway near Exit 12, the Neponset Circle interchange.
