    Gross said the timing of Tuesday's shooting was particularly chilling.

    "You've got kids coming home from school, you have commuters," he said.

    Gross said a motor vehicle did flee the area around the time of the shooting, and collided with another vehicle in traffic. He said it isn't yet known if that vehicle was involved in the crime or was fleeing the gunshots.

    He said the driver has been taken in for questioning.

    Jackson Square is located at the intersection of Centre Street and Columbus Avenue in Jamaica Plain. The area was temporarily closed due to the ongoing investigation but streets have since been reopened.

    People who live in the area say they are fed up with the violence.
