A Night Of Violence In Greater Boston

Download Audio

Five men were shot at the Franklin Field development in Dorchester last night and one died. The Boston Globe identified 43-year-old Rolando Verdejo as the man who lost his life. That shooting was not the only act of violence in our community last night.

A 17-year-old boy from East Boston was stabbed at Revere Beach. In addition, on Massachusetts Ave, one other person was shot and another person was stabbed.

We hear reaction from Talia Rivera, director of Street Outreach, Advocacy, and Response for the city of Boston. Plus, we hear from Jon Feinman, the Founder and Executive Director of InnerCity Weightlifting, on how his program has adapted.
