HYDE SQ.—The Boston Police Department (BPD) is seeking the occupants of a vehicle seen near a fatal shooting at 104 Minden St. at 8:30 p.m. on March 31.

The vehicle is described as a dark-colored Ford Flex. BPD released a small, grainy image of the vehicle, apparently taken from a security camera.

BPD is not saying exactly why the vehicle is being sought and did not describe the occupants as suspects.

BPD has not identified the victim of the homicide. Officers at a recent community meeting said the victim had a “history,” apparently referring to a criminal record.

Anyone with information about the vehicle can contact the BPD Homicide Unit at 617-343-4470 or anonymously by calling 1-800-494-8477 or by texting “TIP” to 27463.
