The victim of Friday night’s shooting in Dorchester has been identified as Carlos Fortes Neves-Silva, 34, of Brockton.
Shortly before 11:40 p.m. on August 12, Neves-Silva was shot multiple times. Police responded to 21 Algonquin St. in Dorchester, where they pronounced him dead at the scene.
According to The Brockton Enterprise, Neves-Silva was shot outside on the street while he was with a friend, but further details about the circumstances of the shooting remain unclear.
Neves-Silva’s wife Esmenia spoke to The Enterprise about her husband, who she said was known to friends and family as “Kay.”
“Everybody knew Kay,” his wife told The Enterprise. “He was very, very friendly — he loved being happy. He was a loving person, loving husband, loving father and loving friend. This is unbelievable.”
Neves-Silva was born in Cape Verde and had three children, 12-year-old Stella, 9-year-old Bruno, and 2-month-old Makayla.
