1 dead, 3 injured in Dorchester shooting

BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston police are investigating a shooting in Dorchester that left one man dead and three others injured.

Officers responding to a report of shots fired in the area of Windermere Road about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday found four men in their 30s suffering from gunshot wounds, according to Boston Police Commissioner William G. Gross.

Investigators say they believe the four men were in a car when they were shot in what did not appear to be a random attack.

One was pronounced dead at the scene. The other three are being treated at a nearby hospital, where they are expected to be OK.

Their names have not been released.

As officers scoured the area for evidence, Gross said he had discussed the shooting with the mayor.

“I spoke to Mayor Walsh,” he said. “We’re both highly upset when things like this happen in our neighborhoods.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Boston police homicide detectives at (617) 343-4470.
