Three people were shot— two fatally— at a three-decker home at 26 Melbourne St. early on Sunday morning (Sept. 4).
Boston Police were called to the scene around 3 a.m. According to NBC10 Boston, one person died at the scene and a second person was pronounced dead at a local hospital. A third victim sustained non-life threatening injuries.
The victims who died were later named as Tefan Ivy, 32 of Brockton and Jermaine Daye, 33, of Randolph.
A neighbor told NBC10 Boston that a stray bullet from the incident went into his home near Wainwright Park and grazed his ankle.
Interim District Attorney Kevin Hayden put out the following statement about the incident:
“The shooting earlier this morning in Dorchester is yet another deadly reminder of the perils to our neighborhoods when too many guns are in the hands of too many people willing to pull the trigger anywhere and anytime. Boston police and my office are doing everything possible to address gun violence but, as I’ve said again and again, the approach must include all of society."
No arrests have been reported.
The Boston Police Department continues to review the facts and circumstances surrounding this incident. Anyone with information is strongly urged to contact Boston Police Homicide Detectives at (617) 343-4470.
