BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Authorities say a man is being hospitalized for injuries sustained in a shooting across the street from Boston Police headquarters.
The shooting happened in the Boston neighborhood of Roxbury on Saturday night.
Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans says the man was shot in the arm and in the lower body during a shootout with another man.
He ran into police headquarters injured as the shooter kept firing. Bullets struck the building, leaving holes in one window.
The man is in the hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.
No information is available on whether a suspect has been taken into custody.
The incident was the latest in a recent spike of violence in Boston.
“Going into the Fourth, I made it clear it’s always a busy time for us. Unfortunately it was busy again,” Evans said.
