Family, friends mourn 2 victims of potential hate crime

Massachusetts

WINTHROP, Mass. (AP) — Family and friends are mourning the two bystanders killed Saturday afternoon by a white gunman in a Boston suburb in an attack officials are treating as a hate crime.

Authorities say David Green, a 68-year-old retired Massachusetts State Police trooper, and Ramona Cooper, a 60-year-old Air Force veteran, were each shot multiple times by 28-year-old Nathan Allen after he crashed a stolen truck into a building in Winthrop.

Allen was fatally shot by police moments later. A candlelight vigil in memory of the victims was to be held Thursday night in front of Town Hall.

A longtime friend of Green says he believes the retired trooper died trying to save others. Cooper’s son remembered his mother as always ready to help anyone in need.
