BOSTON (WHDH) - At least one person was left with life-threatening injuries after a shooting on Blue Hill Avenue in Mattapan, according to police.

Several Boston Police units were called to the street around 1:50 p.m. on Wednesday, blocking off lanes by Landor Road as officers collected evidence.

Suffolk County District Attorney Kevin Hayden said the victim was believed to be either a 58 or 59-year-old man who was left in critical condition from a gunshot wound.

At the investigation, Hayden added that part of the scene included a vehicle that officers were reviewing.

“There’s a car that’s believed to have been involved, but again, we’re still under a very active and fluid investigation at this point,” Hayden told reporters.

Details on what led up to the shooting or descriptions of a suspect(s) have not yet been released.

“I have kids, so, I have three boys and three girls, so, to raise them up in an environment like this, it’s not cool,” said Steve Greer, a father who did not see or hear the shooting, but expressed concern as the shooting took place near a daycare center and several schools.

“I have kids that I have to come and get out of school so, all of this right here, and from the MBTA, that made me late just getting my kids, but at the same time, they’re safe,” said Greer. “But at the same token of time, I just wish we all could be safe like that. It’s a messed up world, man, you know what I’m saying?”
