BOSTON — Police have identified the victim of a fatal shooting in Boston over the weekend as a 17-year-old city teen.

Police responded to reports of a shooting on Wardman Road in Roxbury just after midnight on Saturday and found Adrian Gonzalez outside suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

He was taken to Boston Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

There was no word on arrests or a motive.

People who gathered at a makeshift memorial of flowers and notes at the site of Gonzalez's slaying called him a "sweet" and "good" kid who helped elderly neighbors carry grocery bags.

Police say the slaying was the city's 38th homicide of the year.
