Boston police are investigating a spate of violence in the city between Friday and early Monday, with separate shootings in at least four different neighborhoods, a spokesperson confirmed Monday. Of the 11 victims, at least one has died.

Three people were shot early Monday morning in Brighton in the area of Jette Court, police said. The victims were taken to a hospital with injuries and were expected to survive.

Two people were shot in Mattapan Sunday night in the area of 5 Elizabeth St. Police said they were taken to hospitals with injuries and were also expected to survive.

Early Sunday, two teenagers and a man were shot in Dorchester near 27 Harwood St., police said. The three victims were hospitalized with injuries. Their condition is unknown, but the man's injuries were earlier described as life-threatening.

One man was killed, and two others injured, in a shooting Friday night in Jamaica Plain at about 11 p.m., police said. The two victims who survived have injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening at the time.

Officers found a gun hidden inside the boot of one of the surviving victims as he was transferred to the hospital. Kelvin Pimentel faces charges including carrying a loaded firearm without a license. It could not be determined if he had an attorney.
