Police: 1 man dead after shooting in Mattapan

BOSTON (WHDH) - Police are investigating after a man was found shot and killed inside his Mattapan home Saturday night.

Officers responding to 201 Manchester St. around 11:15 p.m. found a 55-year-old victim suffering from several gunshot wounds.

The man was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Family members say that this is not the first time the man has been shot and that they’re worried that the people who tried to kill him before are responsible for this shooting.

“One homicide is too many,” Boston Police Commissioner William G. Gross said. “That’s why we want everyone to help out if they can.”

No suspects have been named.
