Shots Fired Near Dudley & Columbia Overnight

Yesterday at approximately 00:00 hours, Boston Police Officers assigned to District B-2 responded to the area of Virginia Street as well as Holden Street, in Dorchester, for back to back ShotSpotter activations near the Dudley Street and Columbia Road intersection.

The first ShotSpotter was on Virginia Street, followed by another on Holden Street within minutes of the first. Shortly after the ShotSpotters, a 911 call was made to EMS for an unconscious person. Officers rushed to that address thinking it may be related, but didn’t find any connection between them.

Spent shell casings were found at the scenes, and District Detectives came in to recover ballistic evidence at both.
