"If his intent was to retaliate for that earlier shooting," Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley said in a statement, "then Boston Police may well have saved a life when they made this arrest." ~~~~~

Hours after a person was shot at Wyman and Centre streets, police recovered a gun a block away. But it isn't clear if there's a connection between the two incidents. The shooting took place about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday near but not inside Pimentel Market, police confirmed.
