Boston police: Man killed, 4 injured in 3 separate street shootings within an hour overnight


BOSTON — Boston police say a man has been killed and four people injured in three separate shootings within about an hour overnight.

The fatal shooting happened just before 3 a.m. Saturday on Creston Street in the Dorchester neighborhood. Two other people had non-life-threatening injuries in that incident.

The first shooting was reported on Blue Hill Avenue just before 2 a.m. Police Superintendent William Gross tells The Boston Globe that injured victim was found in a car a short distance away, apparently trying to drive to a hospital. A man was wounded in the third shooting on Bowdoin Street in Dorchester at about 2:30 a.m.

Police don't yet know if the shootings are related, or if they have any connection to an annual Caribbean festival that began early Saturday.
