BROCKTON -
One of the three victims in Sunday night's drive-by shootings at Green and Lexington streets was the victim of an earlier shooting in the same area of the city.
Embassi Dosanjos, 23, of Brockton, who was shot in the knee Sunday, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg in June, according to police.
He and the other two Brockton men shot Sunday night are expected to recover, Detective Lt. Kevin O'Connell said Monday.
He identified the other two victims as John Rodrigues, 18, who was shot in the face, and Daquawn Jones, 18, who was shot in the buttocks.
Police found the three victims when they responded to reports of multiple gunshots at Green and Lexington streets.
"There were ballistics all over Green Street and Lexington Street," said O'Connell, estimating that some 20 shots had been fired. "It was a miracle that nobody was killed."
Rodrigues was airlifted to a Boston hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the face, O'Connell said. His condition could not be determined Monday.
Dosanjos was taken to a Boston hospital for treatment of the gunshot injury he sustained in June.
Police do not know if there was crossfire between the unknown shooter in the passing motor vehicle and the intended victims Sunday, but O'Connell said it appears more than one gun was fired at the scene.
"None of the victims could shed any light on the matter," O'Connell said, echoing a growing concern of investigators, who say they need cooperation from victims and the public in solving crimes in the city.
"From the little information we got, a motor vehicle was coming easterly down Green and opened up (gunfire) at 263 Green," O'Connell said. The car left the area northerly on Lexington Street.
He said the victims, who were apparently all together in front of 263 Green St., said they could not identify the shooter.
"It was not random," O'Connell added.
