Hassan, who reportedly lived in the South End’s Villa Victoria development on Tremont Street, also went by “Hum Greazy” or “Humz,” names he recorded hip-hop music under, according to friends.
Hassan was shot to death at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday in the park. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and no arrests have been made, police said.
