Boston Police are still investigating the shooting death of a 21-year-old Charlestown man last week on Monument Street.
On Tuesday, May 7 at 10:18 p.m. police were called to 92 Monument for a person shot.
Police found the victim, later identified as Steven Jones, 21, of Charlestown, was found suffering from a single gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Jones was a lifelong Charlestown resident where he attended Boston Public Schools. According to his obituary, Jones worked several different jobs in his short lifetime but was always concerned about the well-being of his family and friends. He cherished the quality time that he spent with his loving mother.
Friends of Jones have set up a fund to raise money for his family and held a candlelight vigil last Wednesday.
The fund was set up by Shannon Lundin and can be found at http://www.gofundme.com/2um828.
Over $16,000 had already been raised.
“When a family loses a loved one,they are left with the financial burden of funeral costs on top of their emotional grief,” Lundin wrote on the page. “You can help comfort Steven’s family, especially his mother Suzy- by sharing this page, leaving thoughts, prayers, memories and donating funds. We can all come together.”
