Two miners injured in daytime shooting in Roxbury


“I don’t remember responding to so many daytime shootings.”

Two miners were injured in a shooting in Roxbury on Monday.

Boston police were alerted to the shooting from a report by ShotSpotter at 12:18 p.m. The Boston Globe reported. Officers responded to an apartment building at 2990 Washington St., where they found a man with a gunshot wound inside. The victim was transported to a local hospital and is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

Police found a second male victim with gunshot wounds in nearby Cobden Street. They were also taken to a local hospital, but did not sustain life-threatening injuries, according to the World.

Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden told a news conference that officials were concerned about an increase in daytime shootings.

“I don’t remember responding to so many daytime shootings,” he said, according to the World. “There seems to be more and more, and we are concerned about what appears to be an increase in reckless behavior with guns during the day when people are out in the community.”

No one has been arrested in connection with this incident and an investigation is still ongoing.
