Justice Served: Suspect Found Guilty of Triple Murder in Dorchester

Today, Friday, December 19, 2014, a Suffolk Superior Court Jury returned three guilty verdicts against 29 year-old Keron Pierre for 1st Degree Murder in the fatal shooting deaths of Shakora Gaines, Chantal Palmer and Anthony Peoples.  Some five years ago, at about 4:07am, on March 29, 2009, officers from District C-11 (Dorchester) responded to a call for shots fired in the area of 41 Mt. Ida Road. On arrival, officers located three victims sitting inside a motor vehicle all suffering from what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds. Two of the victims were pronounced deceased at the scene while a third was transported to an area hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries. In the days after the shooting, Pierre fled to Trinidad & Tobago.  Three years later, Pierre was returned to the United States. Today, after a complete and thorough investigation and prosecution by members of the Boston Police Homicide Unit and Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley’s Office, Keron Pierre was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Special thanks to the members of the Boston Police Homicide Unit and Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley’s Office for the hard work, dedication and devotion that led to the successful prosecution of the suspect in this case.
