Following the shooting, investigators talked to witnesses, reviewed surveillance video, and collected forensic evidence from the vehicle to identify Lindor as the alleged defendant. Officials said that Lindor allegedly approached the vehicle and that the two men involved knew each other. After a brief verbal exchange, the defendant allegedly opened the door of the car and shot Tucker, fleeing the scene.

Lindor was arrested at a Boston residence Friday morning.
