BRAINTREE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Braintree Police are telling residents there is no ongoing threat to the public after a double homicide on Sunday morning.

Police said they received several 911 calls around 1:30 a.m. about people hearing shots fired on Alfred Road in Braintree.

Within seconds of getting to the scene, police found two people in a parked vehicle suffering from gunshot wounds. There was a third person in the car that was left uninjured, police said.

Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey has identified the victims as Jahzier Porter, a 16-year-old Braintree High School student, and Jayden Santos-Andrade, of Dorchester, who would have turned 20 next month. The 16-year-old lived near where the shooting took place, DA Morrissey said.

  “We have two families grieving today,” said Morrissey. “We have detectives in the field from Braintree and State Police trying to gather evidence of what happened and who may have been involved."
