Shortly after 00:00 hours Wednesday, B-2 Officers and Detectives with Boston EMS responded to reports of an unconscious male in front of the address of 10 Harlow Street in Roxbury. When EMTs arrived on scene they found an adult male in cardiac arrest and began CPR. He was transported to a local area hospital with severe head trauma.
The male later succumbed to his injuries at the hospital. Full notifications were made due to the nature of the incident and members from the Crime Scene Response Unit, Homicide Unit, and Command Staff and even members of the SWAT Team all responded to the location. Investigators and SWAT Team members could be seen clearing the residence which appeared to be a boarding house, as well as collecting an abandoned bag and some blood evidence.
