At around 3:30 A.M, BPD responded to reports of a shooting on Melbourne Street. One of the victims died on the scene and two others were sent to an area hospital for treatment. One of the hospitalized victims later died from injuries, said BPD.
The other victim hospitalized for treatment suffered non-life threatening injuries.
“The shooting earlier this morning in Dorchester is yet another deadly reminder of the perils to our neighborhoods when too many guns are in the hands of too many people willing to pull the trigger anywhere and anytime. Boston police and my office are doing everything possible to address gun violence but, as I’ve said again and again, the approach must include all of society,” Interim Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden said in a statement.
There are no arrests at this time. BPD is still investigating the incident.
