Man on GPS Bracelet is Latest Person to be Shot on Regina Road in Dorchester

In the early hours of Sunday at approximately 1:20am, Boston Police Officers from District B-3 and C-11 responded to a ShotSpotter activation for multiple rounds fired in the area of Regina Street an area that is not new to the plague of city gun violence.

When officers arrived they began canvasing the area for victims, witnesses and evidence and quickly found numerous spent shell casings through out the area. Additionally, officers located an adult male, who happened to be on a court ordered GPS bracelet for unknown reasons, who had suffered a single gun shot wound to the leg located closely to his right knee.

Initially the victim flat out refused to even consider accepting medical treatment but eventually Boston EMS came to the scene and was able to persuade the man to go to the hospital for further treatment. He is expected to survive given the very non-life-threatening nature of his injury.
