Flonory, a father of five, was also the brother of Eyanna Flonory, 21, who was killed during the Mattapan massacre in 2010, along with her 2-year-old son Amani and two others. One man survived the shooting but was left paralyzed.

“Everybody’s hurting. We went through it with my sister and nephew, now I’m dealing with it with my brothers. It’s hard,” Andrew’s sister Ebony Flonory told FOX 25.
