Hollis police continue to investigate shooting death of 9-year-old boy
HOLLIS – Police are still investigating the shooting that killed a local 9-year-old two weeks ago and said Monday that there is no new information on the boy’s death.
Maximos Hebert, who lived with his father at 143 Runnells Bridge Road, was found on the morning of April 13 in his bedroom, suffering from a gunshot to the head. He was taken to a local hospital and transferred quickly to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, where he later succumbed to his injuries, Hollis Police Chief Jay Sartell said the day after the shooting.
Those who knew him described him as an energetic, intelligent and affectionate child.
Police have still not released further details about the shooting, including whether it was intentional or accidental.
Sartell was not available for comment Monday, but a Police Department employee said there was still no new information. Any further information released to the public, the employee said, would be released in the form of a press release.
