Man Shot Last Night at Franklin Park Zoo

Approximately 20:50 hours a person was found shot on Pierpont Road near the Baseball Fields in Franklin Park. Boston EMS Ambulance 12, Paramedic 2, the Division 2 Lieutenant, Special OperationsTango 3, C20, and C8 all responded. Boston Police Officers from District B-2 as well as the Park Rangers responded as well.

The man was stabilized and transported to a local area hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injures. Family members on scene were understandably upset and police had a difficult time getting the full story on the incident from them.

Detectives were called to the scene and after a long and extensive search of the area were unable to locate a crime scene in the park or general area. At this time no arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing. The man is expected to survive his injuries.
