Man held in shooting that narrowly missed neighbor, infant

SALEM — A Dorchester man, angry after being asked to leave a house party early Saturday morning, returned and opened fire on the Linden Street house, sending one bullet through a neighbor’s bedroom wall, a foot from where a woman was nursing a 61/2-week-old infant, police said.

Evans Timouche, 25, of 37 Fairmount St., Dorchester, is now being held without bail on a charge of home invasion.

No injuries were reported in the incident, which occurred shortly after 4 a.m. at 106 Linden St., near Salem State University, and resulted in multiple 911 calls to the police station from residents.

At least eight shots were fired, most of them as Timouche fled the house, police said.

One of the bullets went through the wall above the bed of the new mother, a 28-year-old woman, while she was nursing her daughter, born at the end of July, she told police.

Residents of the second-floor apartment told police that they had asked the shooter, whom they identified initially as “E,” and two of his friends to leave the party, according to court documents. A brief scuffle broke out, and then the three men left.

Two hours later, “E” and the other men returned, forcing their way into the second-floor apartment where the party was still taking place, according to court documents.

One of the men in the apartment forced the three out again. Timouche allegedly fired through the door, a bullet landing in a wall between the kitchen and bathroom.

As Timouche and the other men fled, Timouche continued firing, leaving a trail of spent shell casings in the hallway, on the walkway and on the sidewalk, court documents said. He and the other men left in two cars.

Police found two bullet holes in the walls of the first-floor apartment, including the one directly over the headboard of the tenant’s bed.
