A gunshot detection system alerted police to a shooting outside a Roxbury bar early this morning that left a 22-year-old man in critical condition.
ShotSpotter detected a single gunshot on the 200 block on Blue Hill Avenue at 1:21 a.m., according to a Boston police spokesman. Officers rushed to the scene and found the man on the ground outside Packy's Pub bleeding from a single bullet wound in his back. He was taken to Boston Medical Center.
Witnesses told police that another man fled the scene. The shooting comes after two people were shot to death Friday in Boston.
