A high school dean, reverend, and a leader of teen anger management and substance abuse programs, was arrested today for allegedly shooting a teenager in the back of the head over drugs.
Rev. Shaun O. Harrison shot the 17-year-old at point blank range on Tuesday, injuring the teen who was allegedly selling drugs for him. Their initial introduction remains unclear.
Around 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, Harrison lured a 17-year-old student onto Magazine Street with promises of girls and drugs, and then shot the student in the back of the head with a handgun, before fleeing on foot, according to authorities.
Police said surveillance footage from a local business captured the incident.
Amazingly, the student, who police have not identified, survived the shooting and was taken to Boston Medical Center for treatment. The student told police that he sold marijuana for Harrison, who ran a drug ring, until the two got into a dispute.
Harrison was arrested soon after and charged with multiple felonies.
