Charlestown Man Wins $2.5M

One lucky Charlestown resident is more than $1 million richer after winning the Massachusetts State Lottery "Winner Green" instant game earlier this month.

William Killoran spent just $10 on the $2.5 million winning holiday instant ticket, which he purchased at Get-N-Go, 152 Highland Ave., Somerville. The shop will receive a $25,000 commission on the sale, according to the state lottery website.

"Killoran selected the cash option on the top prize and received a one-time lump sum payment of $1,625,000, less taxes. He plans on sharing the prize with his family," according to  MassLottery.com.
