    Police are searching for the suspect or suspects that fatally gunned down a man in his car Wednesday night in the city's Dorchester neighborhood.

    After receiving reports of multiple shots fired, officers arrived to Brook Street at 9:45 p.m. where a man in his early 30s was found suffering from gunshot wounds in a gray car.

    The man, who has not been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said authorities believe the victim was targeted.

    "From all indications — it's a quiet street — obviously someone knew he was sitting here. We believe he was targeted in this assault," Evans said.

    Following the shooting, detectives went door-to-door searching for information and had a K9 crew search the area.

    Police are asking anyone with information to contact them.

    "We need the public's help. Obviously it's troubling when you have someone shot on the streets like this," said Evans.
