Two shot in Mattapan incident

The Boston Police Department reports two men were shot in the same incident outside 30 Hopewell Road last night.

Police say the two were shot around 10:10 p.m. One of the victims, 26, told police he heard multiple gunshots, then realized at least one of them had hit him.

When police first arrived on the scene, they found neither victims nor witnesses, but did find "ballistic evidence" at Hopewell and Osceola. Police say an unknown person scooped up both victims and drove them to Carney Hospital. Both are expected to survive, police say.

The shooting scene is a few blocks away from where a man was fatally shot last month, in Hyde Park.
