At about 21:10 hours, on Sunday, November 6, 2022, officers assigned to District B-3 and EMTs and Paramedics from Boston EMS, responded to a 911 call for a person shot outside of 10 Orlando Street in Mattapan.
The 911 caller told dispatchers that a person was “in the middle of the street” and shot. Officers from across the city including the Gang Unit, K-9 Unit and Tactical Assets all responded as well. As units were responding, the dispatcher updated that it was actually two people who bad been shot.
When officers arrived they quickly located two victims and confirmed that they were suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Officers immediately began to render aid to both the victims and requested a push on EMS as one victim was in grave condition after being shot in the torso.
Boston EMTs and Paramedics quickly arrived on scene and both victims were treated and then transported to a local hospital by EMS. It was after arriving at the hospital that one of the victims, an adult male, was tragically pronounced deceased. The second victim’s injuries are considered serious but non-life-threatening.
Full notifications were made by the supervisor on scene, with members of the Homicde Unit, Crime Scene Response Unit and others all responding. Officers closed off Almont Street as well as Orlando as they began to canvas for evidence and witnesses in the area.
At this time no arrests have been made and no suspect description has been made public. The Boston Police Department is actively reviewing the facts and circumstances surrounding both of these incidents.
