Two Boston Men Indicted in VFW Parkway Shooting

Grand Jury indicts pair for alleged involvement in October incident.

Two Boston men have been indicted by a Norfolk Grand Jury for their alleged involvement in the October shooting of a woman driving on the VFW Parkway, Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey announced Wednesday.

Marcel Reed, age 20, of Washington Street in West Roxbury, and Andrew Renna, age 21, of Alabama Street in Mattapan, were each indicted on three counts of Armed Assault to Murder, three counts of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, one count of Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon causing Serious Bodily Injury, and one count of Wanton or Reckless Conduct Posing a Risk of Serious Bodily Injury to a Child.

Renna was additionally indicted on four counts of Accessory after the Fact.

Reed was also indicted for carrying a firearm without a license and indecent assault and battery on a previous date against the same victim he is indicted for shooting.

Although the alleged indecent assault took place at the West Roxbury retail establishment where Reed worked, it is within “100 rods” of the Dedham/Boston boundary, allowing the matter to be subject to Norfolk Superior Court jurisdiction, according to the statement from Morrissey’s office.

Reed is currently being held without bail.

Morrissey said the next date in the case will be the Dedham District Court on Friday morning, but prosecutors will simply ask for a postponement while an arraignment date is set in Norfolk Superior Court.

“We should be able to schedule the arraignment shortly, but not before Friday,” Morrissey said in the statement.

Once the Superior Court case is arraigned, the District Court case will be superseded

The case was investigated by Dedham Police, Boston Police and Massachusetts State Police detectives. Assistant District Attorney Brian Wilson brought the case through the grand jury process and is set to prosecute the matter in Superior Court.
