BOSTON (AP) — Boston police are questioning three people in connection with a shooting that left one woman dead and another with injuries.
Police spokeswoman Rachel McGuire said officers responding to reports of gunfire shortly after 8 a.m. Saturday found a woman suffering from gunshot wounds in the area of Charlotte and Blue Hill Avenues in the Dorchester neighborhood.
The unidentified victim was taken to a hospital where she later died.
McGuire said a second woman was found nearby with non-life threatening gunshot injuries.
Police recovered a firearm and three people were being questioned, but no arrests were immediately reported.
The incident occurred near where an early-morning parade was being held as part of the city’s annual Caribbean Carnival, but it’s not known if the shootings were connected to the event.
