Man Killed, Woman Injured in Boston Shooting

One person is dead and another was injured in a shooting in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood on Thursday morning.

Boston Police said a male victim died at the scene and a female victim was also shot but is expected to survive. She was taken to a local hospital.

Police said they received a call just after 11:30 a.m. for a person shot on Hancock Street.

Boston Police Superintendent-in-Chief William Gross said the investigation is still very active. Police are looking for witnesses and any video footage.

He said at this time, no description of the suspect is being released.

"These senseless acts of violence should not be tolerated," Gross said. "If anyone saw anything, please come forward and help us out."

The male victim, who is in his late 20s, has not yet been identified, he said.

Gross said the shooting does not appear to have been a random act of violence. He said it appears an argument may have preceeded the shooting.
