• Boston police need help finding gunman in video


    HYDE PARK (MyFoxBoston.com) – Boston police are looking for a man seen on surveillance video pointing a gun at a woman's head in Hyde Park and pulling the trigger. No shot was fired, but police want to find the guy.

    The video shows the silver car pulling up outside 171 Crown Point Drive Friday morning. Then a man wearing a face mask and black hoodie gets out and heads directly for the woman.

    When he pulls the trigger, nothing happens. It's unclear if the gun was actually loaded. Then the man leaves without taking anything from the victim.

    The woman, who appears frantic and holds her hands to her face, runs toward an apartment building.
    Investigators aren't releasing a possible motive or saying whether they think the woman knew the suspect.

    Call Boston police if you recognize the man.
