Everybody’s number eventually comes up, sooner or later. In the case of Lenny Isaac, that number was 20 and above:

A man who survived 19 gunshot wounds in 1995 died Friday after he was shot again multiple times in his pickup truck.

Lenny Isaac, 39, of Dorchester, was found by his sister, who spotted his blue pickup truck near the family's home at about 4:30 p.m. When she stopped, she discovered her brother slumped across the seat.

He had been shot multiple times in the left side of his back and his neck. He was taken to Boston Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

There's a section of Dorchester called Savin Hill, which goes by the nickname 'Stab and Kill'. It's not clear if Lenny Isaac lives there...

Hopefully someone will build a shrine to Lenny

He knew the guy who shot him, and told everybody who it was.

Nobody believed him, and the shooter was released to take another shot at him.

I read the source article. Did anyone else see how he knew and identified one of the shooters in the previous shooting, and the guy he identified wasn't convicted?

Remind me not to move to or even visit boston.
