One man was killed and a second man is in a Boston hospital with life threatening injuries following a shooting late Monday night on a Dorchester street, Boston police said today.
Residents on Callender Street said today they saw a white SUV parked on Irma Street near the intersection with Callender around 11:40 p.m. Suddenly, the witnesses said, they heard at least five gunshots coming from the direction of the SUV.
One eyewitness said he looked out his window, drawn by the sound of gunfire.
“I was watching TV and I heard really loud shots, at least five or six,’’ said the man, who would not provide his name because he feared for his own safety. “You could tell that the man in the passenger seat was dead. He wasn’t moving at all.’’
An eyewitness said the driver of the SUV forced his door open and then was seen staggering across Callender street, looking like he was drunk. He left a trail of blood and collapsed to the ground. Police said he was rushed to Boston Medical Center where he is being treated for life-threatening injuries.
The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The name of the men were not released, but police said both were in their 40s.
