Trial continues of d’Onofrio’s killers

The trial continues of one of the men who shot and killed the “wrong” man in a north-end café two years ago, but Paul Cherry doesn’t account here for media reports at the time that the victim was a mobster. Cherry says here that police knew immediately it must have been a mistaken hit. Did police not tell reporters? Or were the media too keen to sound like they had inside knowledge of the situation? There are still stories up like this one calling the victim a “presumed mobster.”

The presumed target that was intended that day is, by the way, still alive.
