Randolph teen dies of bullet wound
A 16-year-old Randolph youth was shot and killed near his home last night, officials said.
Kyle Louzada, of 127 Oak St., was found at the corner of Oak and Tangen streets about 7 p.m. with what is believed to be a single gunshot wound, said Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey.
Morrissey said late last night that the shooting was being classified as a death investigation, and that authorities would look into all possible causes of the death. He did not call the death a homicide.
The district attorney added that officials were in the process of obtaining a search warrant for the premises last night.
Louzada had lived in Randolph for a number of years, Morrissey said. He did not confirm if teenager was a high school student.
“It appears the residence is known to the Randolph police,’’ Morrissey said.
A portion of Oak Street was blocked off by police tape last night, and a group of neighbors gathered in the rain on a nearby corner.
“We never have problems,’’ said Daniel Ostiguy, 28, who lives about a mile away. “I’m not afraid to walk the streets at night.’’
Tommy Lee, 21, said he went to the scene after seeing state troopers in the area and reading about the incident on Facebook. Lee described the area as “quite a quiet neighborhood.’’
“Right now, I’m really, really shocked,’’ Lee said. “I wish, I mean, what is the purpose of killing someone?’’
