Boston Police report Akeem Polimis, 17 and a student at the Codman Academy Charter Public School, was fatally shot at 29 Ferndale St., near Codman Square in Dorchester around 6:45 p.m. on Friday.

However, somebody loaded him in a car, and drove him to Victory Road in Quincy's Squantum neighborhood, where police found him in the car, dead, police say.

Juan Nazario, 18, of Dorchester, was arrested around 11:30 a.m. today on charges of murder and unlawful possession of a gun and ammunition, police say.

Police did not say if Nazario was the one who drove Polimis to Quincy. Whoever did crashed into a car at Adams and Park streets in Dorchester, which caused the front bumper to fall off further down Park Street as the driver made his way to the Expressway.

Polimis is Boston's second murder victim this year.

I heard about this yesterday; my daughter was his classmate and she heard the news from someone else. I just pray for his family and that there is some justice.

His teachers set up a gofundme for his family here. Really awful loss especially now when it's so hard to get that community support that helps when you're grieving.
