BOSTON (WHDH) - Community leaders are calling for an end to the violence after yet another shooting in Dorchester.
Boston Police were on the scene of a deadly drive-by shooting on Saturday afternoon, the second daytime shooting in as many days.
The shooting happened around 4 p.m. Saturday in the area of Evans Street, according to authorities.
Police say a man in his 30s was sitting in his red Ford Escape when another car came up and opened fire. First responders pronounced him dead at the scene.
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said the shooting was “clearly, clearly targeted to the vehicle.” He noted it did not appear to be a random attack.
The victim’s identify has not been released.
“Broad daylight, a lot of people out…this sort of stuff shouldn’t be happening,” Evans said.
No arrests have been made at this time.
Saturday’s shooting was the second daytime shooting in two days in the Boston neighborhood, but police say the incidents are not related.
