At approximately 20:00 hours, Friday night, Boston Police Officers assigned to District C-11 responded to a ShotSpotter activation for 5 rounds in the area of 394 Washington Street, in Dorchester.
Officers arrived on scene and located spent shell casings alone with abandoned moped/scooter vehicles that are believed to be involved as they have been connected to multiple calls for shots fired in the area throughout recent weeks.
Detectives were called to the scene outside of Mother’s Rest Park to photograph and process ballistic evidence as well as examine the discarded scooters as well.
