Ten people were shot, and all suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Ten people were shot in Boston over the weekend in various incidents, according to Boston police. All of the victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

In the tenth shooting of the weekend, a man was shot on Smith Street in Mission Hill around 8:20 p.m. on Sunday night. He was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, The Boston Globe reported.

Before 9:30 p.m. on Friday a woman was shot near 571 Dudley St. in Dorchester, and taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury, the Globe reported. Later that evening, two men showed up at a hospital emergency room with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, but would not share information on where they got shot.


“Neither male victim was cooperative,” Officer Stephen McNulty told the Globe. Police requested anyone with information call the Boston Police Crime Stoppers at 1-800-494-TIPS.

A man was shot near 360 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain just after 4:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, the Globe reported. He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Around 11:30 a.m. on July 10, officers responded to a report of a person shot on Delano Street in Dorchester. Officers found an adult male with an apparent gunshot wound. His injuries are considered non-life-threatening and he was transported to a local hospital.

The suspect, Boma Howell, 42, of Roxbury, was arrested around 4:45 p.m. near Downer Avenue, and police recovered a partially loaded revolver. Howell will appear in Dorchester District Court on four charges, including unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.

Later that day, four men were shot at 34 Cameron St. in Dorchester around 6:00 p.m. Police said the wounds were “non-life threatening” but noted that officers applied tourniquets to two of the victims, likely saving their lives, WBZ reported.

“It’s upsetting to the neighbors that live in the neighborhood,” Boston Police Deputy Superintendent Victor Evans told WBZ. “There has been a little uptick in violence, so that’s why we need the public’s support to notify us if they have any information regarding this shooting.”


The incident is under investigation, and no arrests were made as of Saturday night.
