Teen and 23-year-old man injured in Saturday night shooting in Dorchester

A 23-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were shot on Page Street in Dorchester late Saturday night, leaving the man hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, according to Boston police.

Officers responded to 2 Page St. at 11:09 p.m. and found the victims on the street suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, said Officer Neva Coakley, a police spokeswoman.

Both victims were transported to Boston Medical Center, she said. The 16-year-old’s injuries were not life threatening.

Boston homicide detectives are investigating the shooting, she said.

Police are treating the Saturday night shooting as separate from two shootings earlier that day in Roxbury that left one man dead, Coakley said.

A double shooting on Harold Street at 1:37 Saturday morning left one man dead and another hospitalized.

About an hour later, around 2:25 a.m., at Orchard Gardens Housing Development, eight shots were fired at a gathering of people but no injuries reported.

Police made two arrests in the Orchard Gardens shooting. Jeremy Harris, 23, of Brockton, and Terrance Jamaal Johnson, 25, of Hyde Park, are expected to be arraigned Monday in Roxbury District Court.

Detectives are looking into the possibility that the shootings earlier in the day are gang-related and possibly retaliatory, officials said. It was unknown whether the Saturday night shooting was also gang-related.
