Massachusetts Avenue and Magazine Street Shootings

This morning at 1:18am, officers from District 6 responded to a radio call for shots fired at 1010 Massachusetts Avenue. On arrival, the officers spoke with a witness who stated that three motor vehicles traveling on Massachusetts Avenue toward Melnea Cass Boulevard were screaming out the windows of their cars at each other. While stopped at a red light on Magazine Street and Massachusetts Avenue, a suspect exited one of the vehicles and approached one of the other vehicles while yelling at the occupants. The witness stated that he then heard multiple shots fired and all three vehicles fled the scene. While officers were on scene where ballistic evidence had been recovered, they were advised that two people had been transported to the Boston Medical Center suffering from gunshot wounds. Treated at the hospital was a 19-year-old male from Roxbury who was suffering from a gunshot wound to the face and a 19 year-old male from Roslindale was treated for a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Both injuries are considered non-life threatening. The investigation into this incident continues.
