A large crime scene has been established by the police in the parking lot. Buildings in the area also include Cambridge District Court.

The suspect and victim knew each other, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said.

William Barabino, the suspect’s lawyer says WBZ-TV that his client had been arrested.

The incident happened after a debate in court over a restraining order, Barabino said.

“There is an allegation, a suggestion that my client turned a corner, drove his car into a person. This person is his nephew. I slammed him into the car and fired five times “, Barabino said.

The lawyer added that he may know the reasoning for the incident.

“There was a restraining order that he didn’t get through,” Barabino said of his client.

“He didn’t express his disappointment. In fact, he said he was fine. Obviously he wasn’t.”

Massachusetts State Police were called to investigate the incident.
