BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Boston Police Department put out a community alert Saturday, asking for the public’s help identifying an individual in connection to an ongoing homicide investigation.

Officers responded to a radio call Friday at 12:40 p.m. for a person shot in the area of Bowdoin Avenue and Washington Street in Dorchester.

When they arrived, officers found a victim, later identified at 19-year-old Tasjahnaya Dance of Dorchester, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. She was transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced deceased.

BPD released several photos Saturday afternoon of a Black person in a white sweater, who the Department is trying to identify in connection to Dance's death.
