BOSTON (WHDH) - Police are investigating three separate shooting scenes in Roxbury after a violent Fourth of July left at least one person dead and three hospitalized, police said.

Officers could be seen scouring a vehicle in the area of Seaver Street and Humboldt Avenue early Monday morning, where evidence markers lined the roadway. One person who was shot and then struck by a vehicle near the scene was later pronounced dead, police said.

Boston police say a preliminary investigation determined:

  • 12:10 a.m. — A shooting victim walked into Boston Medical Center with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound around 12:10 a.m.
  • 1:48 a.m. — Officers respond to shooting in the area of 54 Hollander St., find one person suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
  • 1:53 a.m. — Officers respond to a shooting in the area of 198 Harold St., find one person suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
  • 3:23 a.m. — Officers respond to a report of a person shot and then struck by a motor vehicle at the intersection of Seaver and Humboldt and pronounce the victim dead.

“You never know what’s going to happen when you go out to the store,” one shaken resident said of the violence in the neighborhood.

“We have children in our neighborhood get shot, we have innocent people who get shot sometimes by stray bullets,” she said.

No additional information was immediately released.
