Boston police investigate triple homicide in Dorchester
By James Vaznis, Globe staff
Boston police are investigating a triple homicide early this morning in Dorchester.
A man and two women were shot as they sat in a vehicle outside a party on Mt. Ida Road at about 4 a.m., according to police. The three victims, who were either in their late teens or early 20s, were rushed to Boston Medical Center. All were pronounced dead shortly after from their injuries.
By noon today, the vehicle in which the shootings had happened had been towed away. No one at the residence of the three-decker where the party allegedly took place answered the door. Few residents were willing to speak of the shootings in this densely populated neighborhood of three-decker and single-family houses that are near Ronan Park. One resident said the sound of gunshots here is a common occurrence.
The shooting took place eight hours after police found the body of a man in his late 20s, covered with blood, in an apartment on Ogdon Street in Dorchester. Boston police spokesman James Kenneally said he expected to release more information on that death later this afternoon.
Police are urging anyone with information about the triple homicide to call the homicide unit at 617-343-4470.
