Police: Shootings Leave 6 Injured In Boston

BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Police say multiple shootings have left six people injured in Boston.

Boston police say two men were wounded in shootings near Boston International High School in the city’s Dorchester neighborhood early Saturday. Police say a man was shot at around 1 a.m.

A woman was shot in Roxbury around 6:50 p.m. Friday.

Police spokeswoman Rachel McGuire says a woman was shot in Dorchester about 10 minutes later.

A few hours later another woman was shot. Preliminary information indicates it may have been a domestic incident.

Officials say nearly all of the victims are under 25-years-old.

Mayor Marty Walsh responded saying, “Thank God no fatalities and no serious shootings but still having them in the city is horrifying for folks so we are going to be putting on a little extra patrol tonight and making sure we have a safe weekend.”

No one sustained injuries considered life-threatening.
