BOSTON (CBS) — An early-morning shooting killed a man in Roxbury on Thursday.

Boston police said they responded at about 4:40 a.m. to 56 Holworthy St.

A male victim was shot and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Homicide investigators are still searching for evidence at the scene.

City Councilor Tito Jackson told WBZ-TV that the victim was a father, and the shooting happened near the Trotter Elementary School.

“No young people should ever have to walk past a crime scene on the way to school,” he said. “This is unacceptable in every neighborhood.”
