A shooting rampage at a home at 40 Woolson Street in Mattapan on Tuesday morning left four persons dead, including a toddler. A fifth victim is hospitalized and not expected to survive, according to Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis.

Elected officials, clergy and Boston Police met with outraged residents during a community meeting on Tuesday evening at Morningstar Baptist Church to discuss the murders. Universal Hub has video from the event, including remarks from Gov. Deval Patrick.

The last shooting on Woolson Street, according to police records obtained by the Reporter, occurred a month ago at 42 Woolson St., right next door to Tuesday's shooting scene. It is not yet clear whether the Aug. 28 shooting, reported as an assault and batter with a dangerous weapon- gun at 42 Woolson Street, is related to last night's homicides.

The victim in the Aug. 28 incident survived and his identity has not been released. He was found by police just after 7 a.m. in the first-floor hallway of 42 Woolson. He had been shot in the upper torso and arms. Police searched the address but did not seize anything at the time, according to a police report.  Read more
