One man suffered a life-threatening injury and a second a minor wound in a shooting in Roxbury’s Highland Park section Monday night, Boston police said.
A 911 call came in just past 9 p.m. and reported the incident on Beech Glen St., said Officer Katherine Shea, a police spokeswoman.
Both men were taken by ambulance to Boston Medical Center, Shea said.
At the scene, police blocked off a section of the short, bow-shaped street and shined powerful lights down on the asphalt. Officers with flashlights and a police dog peered into adjacent yards.
A detective on scene said shootings in this part of Roxbury are rare.Jeremy C. Fox can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
