BOSTON (WHDH) - Police are investigating after a man was shot and killed in Roslindale late Friday night, the Boston neighborhood’s second shooting death in as many days.
Officers patrolling the area heard gunshots and responded to Paine Street around 10:30 p.m., where they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound, according to Boston police.
The man, believed to be in his 30s, was taken to a nearby hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
Boston Police Commissioner William G. Gross issued a plea for help, saying, “We are asking if anyone has any information if they can help us facilitate this investigation.”
Friday’s violence came one day after another deadly shooting in Roslindale. That shooting happened just around the corner near 581 American Legion Highway.
Police say they found two men shot, one of whom later died at the hospital.
Speaking near the scene on Pain Street, Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins addressed the spike in violence.
“We have had an uptick in activity in the last 24 plus hours, we’re working diligently with the Boston Police Department to assist in any way possible, whether it’s search warrants, but we are confident that we’re going to be moving, we hope, forward with this investigation and the others that have happened in the last 24 plus hours,” she said.
Anyone with information on either of these two shootings is urged to contact Boston Police.
