A teenager was found shot and killed in Boston early Wednesday in the city's Dorchester neighborhood, Boston police said.
At around 1:40 a.m. officers found the body of a 19-year-old man, who has not yet been identified, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, Boston police said in a statement. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene in the area of Washington Street and Dunbar Avenue.
There have been no arrests in the case. Investigators are searching for a motive behind the shooting and trying to determine whether the man was targeted, according to Rachel McGuire, a Boston police spokeswoman.
The shooting is the city's third homicide of the year, McGuire confirmed on Wednesday.
