Prosecutors: Fellow Snow Crew Member ‘Called in the Hit’

The Suffolk County District Attorney’s office released key details Friday in their theory of how Kenny Lamour wound up shot dead on Centre Street two weeks ago.

During the arraignment of Donte Henley, 24, of South Boston on a murder charge in the broad daylight killing on busy Centre Street, prosecutors argued Henley was working alongside Lamour doing community-service snow shoveling. Henley allegedly texted and called Josiash Zachery, 18, and told him to come to where the Roca Inc. crew was working, between Murray Circle and the Monument — and to bring a gun.

Prosecutors claim Henley described what Lamour was wearing.

“Mr. Henley called in the hit,” Assistant District Attorney Ian Polumbaum told West Roxbury Municipal Court on Friday.

Zachery allegedly gunned down Lamour at 891 Centre St., then fled from police. As cops chase him, prosecutors say he also fired at police. He didn’t hit them and police didn’t return fire on the mid-morning streets of JP.

Judge David Breen ordered Henley held without bail.

Jamaica Plain News has reached out to Henley’s attorney for his client’s side of the story. We’ll update this item when we hear back.
