More than a dozen green evidence markers dotted the store’s parking lot late Sunday as detectives scoured the scene.

At the far side of the store’s parking lot, crime scene tape surrounded a black Nissan, which had jumped the curb. Both front windows were shattered, and it remained running, its windshield wipers swishing back and forth as police investigated. Most of the evidence markers sat behind the car in the parking lot.

Some customers remained in the shop and around the parking lot.

Multiple passersby said they had not heard shots and did not know what happened. The scene was almost directly below a red light traffic camera.

Police blocked off a wide section of Dorchester Avenue between Talbot Avenue and Ashmont Street, forcing traffic detours for MBTA busses. A crime scene response truck and a number of cruisers blocked off the road, flooding nearby closed storefronts in a wash of blue emergency lights.

No further information was immediately available Sunday.
