BOSTON (AP) — Stephen "The Rifleman" Flemmi, the once-loyal partner of reputed Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger, on Friday recounted multiple killings he said Bulger was involved in, either by planning them, approving them or committing them himself.
Flemmi returned to the witness stand a day after giving 15 minutes of testimony in Bulger's racketeering trial before court recessed for the day.
In rapid-fire succession, Flemmi described Bulger's alleged role in a string of killings during the 1970s and '80s when both men were leaders of the Winter Hill Gang.
Flemmi said he and Bulger sprayed a phone booth with bullets in 1975, killing Edward Connors, a bar owner, who was targeted because he was "telling people Winter Hill business," including details about an earlier killing committed by the gang.
Flemmi said another member of the gang lured Connors to the phone booth, telling him he would receive a call there at a certain time. When Connors showed up, Bulger and Flemmi were waiting for him, Flemmi said.
"We just stepped out from the side of the building — the garage — and shot him," Flemmi said, matter-of-factly. "We just fired on him."
