Victim Left with Severe Injuries after Shooting in front of the Moxy

At approximately 21:12 hours last night Sunday, December 11th, Boston Police officers assigned to District A-1 both responded to a 911 call reporting that multiple people were injured after a shooting and stabbing that occurred near 240 Tremont Street.

As soon as officers responded to the area, they located one of the victims in front of the Moxy. The victim had suffered severe and life-threatening injuries from apparent gunshot wounds, and Police quickly ordered a push on EMS.

Once Boston EMS arrived, they immediately began treating the victim and dressing their wounds. They were rushed to a local hospital for further treatment and are still in the hospital recovering. Their current condition is unknown and their identity has not yet been released to the public.

The supervisor on the scene made full notifications because of the severe nature of this incident. Homicide detectives responded and promptly assisted Police in marking evidence. Responders taped off the area to investigate and found multiple ballistic shell casings and a large bullet hole in one of the windows at the Moxy. Police believe at least two rounds were fired into the Moxy’s lobby area.

Police also began scanning the area for the possible suspect involved. The suspect was seen fleeing away from the scene down Tremont Street, and was described as a black male reportedly wearing a black sweatshirt with lettering on it. Police closed off the surrounding streets to make their search easier. However, no arrests have been made at this time.

During their search, investigators checked multiple buildings’ cameras to see if the suspect had fled somewhere else. They discovered that there was a possible second victim who was seen fleeing towards the Tufts Medical Center. However, sources on the scene have not confirmed their involvement in the Tremont Street shooting.

The investigation is still ongoing and there is no further information at this time. Police and Homicide Detectives are actively reviewing the facts of this case. Anyone with information is urged to contact A-1 Detectives at 617-343-4248.
