BOSTON — Police are searching for suspects in two separate murders in Boston. Two men were shot dead around 8 p.m. Tuesday night, one in Dorchester, the other in Roxbury.

Just after 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, police responded to 7 Samoset St., where they found a black male in his 50s suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. About an hour later, police found a man in his early 20s suffering from an apparent gunshot wound at 60 Dearborn St.

Both were later pronounced dead at Boston Medical Center.
