Death Investigation in the area of 226 Margaretta Drive


At about 11:03 PM on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, officers from District E-5 (West Roxbury) responded to a radio call for a person shot at 226 Margaretta Drive in Hyde Park.

On arrival officers observed two male victims inside the apartment suffering from gunshot wounds.  One victim was transported to Brigham and Women's Hospital with life threatening injuries and was later pronounced deceased at the hospital. A second victim with non-life threatening injuries was transported to Beth Israel Hospital for further treatment. At this point the incident appears to be domestic in nature and not a random act.
