BOTHELL (WHDH) – A 14-year-old was killed in a double shooting that occurred in Roxbury on Monday during the middle of the day, and police are looking for the shooter.
Just before 12:30 p.m., police discovered one teen with several gunshot wounds close to Washington Street. They immediately discovered another victim inside an adjacent apartment on Cobden Street who had been shot. The 14-year-old was taken in an ambulance and later declared deceased at the hospital. With minor injuries, the survivor victim was also transferred to the hospital.
Several on-scene witnesses claimed they heard gunfire and saw individuals fleeing.
And bang, I heard it. After then, I heard pow pow pow pow! a witness recalled. “I was directly behind that one child who they abducted, by a long shot. He was moving up this way, then moving up that way. He likely had a conflict with someone, and this is what transpired next.
Authorities view this as a singular incident.
Kevin Hayden, the district attorney for Suffolk County, declared that there are “again, too many guns on our streets.” “This is yet another shooting on a holiday in broad daylight.”
Witnesses expressed concern for their own children’s safety in the peaceful area.
Another witness, Catherine Betters, stated, “I have my babies, and it scares me to death.” “I never let any of my babies leave, ever. School and house stay put; they don’t travel somewhere else.
Local resident Maudrie Depradine described the material as “scary, overwhelming, and disturbing.”

Hayden expressed his concern for the neighbourhood and the seriousness of gun violence.
A 14-year-brutal old’s death is “a tragedy beyond words, an epic loss for family and friends, and a severe blow to our community,” Hayden said. “Investigators will use every available resource to learn the truth about this terrible incident. But one thing is certain: gunfire on our streets has killed a youngster.
Local residents expressed their sympathy to the victim’s relatives.
Depradine stated, “Another family has to experience losing a loved one and dealing with the loss. “Fourteen is a really young age. It’s awful that there are so many firearms on Boston’s streets. It ruined the entire neighbourhood today, which is awful.
Anyone with knowledge of the two shootings is being urged to contact the police.
Hayden stated, “We will keep doing everything we can in this inquiry. We are appealing for the community’s assistance and support.
The teen who was slain was a student at Boston Public Schools, according to that institution.
Superintendent Mary Skipper issued a statement saying, “We are extremely heartbroken about the loss of one of our students, who was a victim of a senseless act of gun violence over the weekend.” “As a community, we are grieving, and counsellors and support staff are on the ground offering support to students and employees… To prevent the avoidable death of any parent, teacher, classmate, or another person, we must unite as a community to put an end to gun violence.
