BOSTON — A 15-year-old boy was shot and killed in Boston on Thursday night, the city's third homicide of the day, police said.
The teen was one of three people shot in the city’s Roxbury neighborhood at about 10 p.m., police said.
“It’s been a busy and violent night folks,” police Commissioner William Gross said at the scene of the latest killing.
The teen was taken to the hospital where he died. The two other victims drove themselves to the hospital.
Their names were not released and no arrests were announced.
“The violence is unacceptable,” Mayor Marty Walsh said. “This violence is tragic, this violence is sad, this violence needs to stop.”
