BOSTON — The fourth victim of Boston’s recent mass murder was laid to rest Monday at Jubilee Baptist Church in Mattapan.

Levaughn Washum-Garrison was 22. He had a baby daughter. He loved watching football, shopping for clothes and eating Sunday dinner at his mother’s house, the obituary said.

“He was a great kid and had a loving family,” said Bernadette Williams, who knew Washum-Garrison since he was a small boy.

Washum-Garrison was killed almost two weeks ago on a street in Mattapan. Three other victims — including a toddler, his young mother and her boyfriend — were buried last week. Another man shot that night remains in critical condition.

No one has been charged with the murder, although police have a man in custody on related charges.
