Mark Joseph McMullen
Black, Male, 44
Boston Police Department
Boston Police shot and killed Mark McMullen after a chase beginning in Roxbury on Blue Hill Ave. continuing through Boston and onto I-93 which ended at Exit 14 off Route 3 South in Rockland.
In 2011, McMullen, 44, was killed after allegedly hitting and dragging a woman with his car, then speeding away. An hour-long chase ensued, and police said McMullen rammed two cruisers before he was shot. Two officers and a state trooper were hospitalized. The ACLU of Massachusetts and McMullen’s family demanded an independent investigation. They said the officer’s decisions to chase and then shoot McMullen were questionable.
