Not long after the ShotSpotter in H-Block, again BPD Officers for B-2 were called in for reports of a person shot on Warren Street on Monday night, right out front of the Dudley MBTA station. Boston Police and Boston EMS immediately responded to the scene and found the victim, believed to be a male in his late teens or early twenties, having sustained two apparent gunshot wounds to the chest. EMTs and Paramedics quickly transported him to a local area trauma center with serious, life-threatening injuries.
Due to the extent of his injuries he was deemed to be in critical condition, prompting a response from Homicide Detectives, Crime Scene Response Unit, Command Staff, and District Detectives. There have been no updates on the victim’s condition as of this morning, however it is believed that he is still alive. At one point in the investigation, Boston Fire responded to the scene to help canvas the roof of a nearby building while looking for what is assumed to be the firearm.
According to radio traffic, the shooting may have been captured on camera by the Police, but that report has gone unconfirmed. There are no other details that have been released regarding the victim or any potential suspects, but there have been no arrests made in the notes for available suspect information to the public.
