BOSTON (CBS) – Two people were shot dead at a home in Hyde Park early Tuesday morning.

A woman, 24-year-old Billie Marie Kee, and her boyfriend were shot and killed in a first-floor apartment on Hyde Park Avenue shortly after midnight.

A 4-year-old boy was removed from the home, but was not physically hurt. He was sleeping in another room during the shooting.

“My grandson, he’s OK. I don’t believe he saw what went on in the apartment,” said William Kee, Billie Marie’s father.

William Kee is a retired Boston police detective.

“She was always a fighter. She was born prematurely 24 years ago in a Boston city hospital. I remember as I worked as a detective out of headquarters, I used to go there and rock her in her chair. I can’t believe that 24 years later, it’s the end of my daughter’s life,” said William Kee.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Karen Twomey reports.

Kee said his daughter, who was once a Boston police cadet but later opted out of the program, was studying at Roxbury Community College. He said she never had any trouble, but added that he didn’t know much about her boyfriend and whether he may have been targeted in the shooting.

Police said they are looking for several suspects seen running from the apartment. No arrests have been made.

Investigators said that there were no signs of forced entry and the incident did not appear to be random. They added that it appears to be a drug-related crime.

Anyone with information is asked to call Boston police.

    I grew up on Metropolitan Ave. not far from there. We ‘ratted out’ thugs or took care of them ourselves. It makes me sick to see what goes on in the old neighborhood, now that the liberal agenda has taken hold. My son got beaten over there in 2006, a policeman’s daughter was a witness who wouldn’t step forward, so of course the police wouldn’t answer my calls. Menino puts on a good show for the media, but from my experience, you have to be one of his favorites to get justice in Boston.
