The victims, men in their late 40s, were taken to area hospitals but did not survive. Their identities have not yet been released.

Neighbors told WBZ-TV they woke up to the sound of gunfire then heard police sirens.

Just about a half a mile down the road, a shooting left a 74-year-old woman dead last week.

Boston Police said no arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
