Police identify victims in South Boston double murder

BOSTON (WHDH) - An apartment in South Boston that bills itself as one of Boston’s most luxurious residences was the scene of a double murder that ended in a shootout Friday night.

Two people were found dead in the penthouse of the luxury building in South Boston. A terrifying double murder was carried out on the top floor.

“We have a guy here who just killed two people and had nothing to lose,” said Boston Police Commissioner William Evans.

When police arrived at the scene, officers say the suspect shot at them, and police returned fire.
