Two people were shot to death in separate incidents just over an hour apart in Boston early Sunday morning.
Officers were called to the first incident around 12:49 a.m. near 18 Adams St. in Roxbury. When police arrived, they found an adult man suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Then, around 1:58 a.m., police were sent to 25 Regis Road in Mattapan for a person suffering from gunshot wounds. Another adult man was found there and he was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died.
For both incidents, police are asking those who may know something to call the department’s homicide detectives at 617-343-4470. People can also call the department’s anonymous CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1-800-494-TIPS, or by texting TIP to CRIME (27463).
The department also told those who may need help dealing with what happened to call the Boston Neighborhood Trauma Team any time at 617-431-0125, or visit its website at BPHC.org/trauma.
The shootings mark the latest in a series of violent incidents in Boston. Earlier this month, a 15-year-old boy shot and killed in Roxbury was the city’s third homicide victim in 24 hours.
