Photo by Pat TarantinoThe murder of a 36- year-old man who was found shot to death on Nahant Avenue near Adams Corner early Monday morning has prompted renewed calls for police enforcement in that section of Dorchester, where gun violence is rare but not unprecedented. Boston Police are probing whether the murder is connected to an armed robbery that happened just a block away on Ashmont Street on Sunday night.

Ciaran O Conghaile (or Conneely), who is originally from the Aran Islands in County Galway, Ireland, died hours after a neighbor found him at 1 a.m. sprawled along the curb outside 20 Nahant Ave., just steps from his apartment. Conneely suffered from a single gunshot wound to the chest. He was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries and died later in the morning, according to the Boston Police Department.  Read more

That's one possibility that was raised at a redistricting hearing held Thursday in downtown Boston.

While the city gained residents overall, rising by five percent to 617,594 residents, some parts of the city lost population by official counts, including parts of Dorchester, Mattapan, Hyde Park and Roslindale, and West Roxbury.  Read more
