A teenage boy who is a student at Jeremiah Burke High School was shot Tuesday morning near the school in Dorchester, according to Boston police.

At 9:34 a.m., police received a call to 60 Washington St., where they found the victim and transported him to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

In a press conference, police said they located a firearm in the area and identified a suspect, who they believe is a student at the same high school.

Mary Skipper, superintendent of Boston Public Schools, expressed her sadness at the incident.

“This is a school … and again we have violence with youth. Too many students, too many young people, too many guns on the streets,” she said.
