Investigators said the shooting was not random. The victim was shot once in the head and was rushed to a Boston hospital, where he is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

His name has not been made public. There have been no arrests.

“It’s so scary because we have a 15-moth old,” neighbor Rachel Mahmood told WBZ-TV. “This never happens here, ever. Everybody knows everybody.”
