Boston Police Investigate Fatal Shooting In Roxbury

Boston police are investigating a shooting early Monday morning at a house party that killed one man and injured another.

At 3:05 a.m. Monday, officers responded to a call about a person shot in the area of 66 Humboldt Ave. in the city's Roxbury neighborhood.

Officers discovered a 28-year-old man had been shot; they pronounced him dead at the scene. Authorities say he had been known to police.

Soon after, officers found another male victim in his early 20s suffering from a gunshot wound to his ankle. He was transported to a Boston hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.

Officers also recovered a total of three firearms at the scene of the shooting.

Police have not yet released the victims' identities.

No arrests have been made, and a spokeswoman for the department said the details of the shooting and recovery of the firearms are still under investigation.

Boston police urge anyone with information to call the department's homicide detectives at 617-343-4470.
