BOSTON — The Boston Police Department is now investigating the third shooting in a 24-hour time span from Sunday night through Monday night.
Some witnesses told Boston 25 they’re not surprised but more aggravated to see violence, again and again.
At approximately 8 p.m. Monday, Boston Police responded to 917 Blue Hill Avenue for reports of a man shot. Upon arrival, police located the victim, and he was later transported to the nearest local hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
The Boston Police Department announced at approximately 6 a.m. Tuesday morning that an arrested was made in connection to the shooting that occurred on Blue Hill Avenue. Oscar L. Bolding, Jr., 42, of Dorchester, was arrested and charged with murder and firearms charges for his alleged involvement in the deadly shooting and is scheduled to appear in front of a judge Tuesday morning at Dorchester District Court.
Then, Monday afternoon, about a mile from this crime scene at 348 Bowdoin Street, a man was shot while in a car with two children and later taken to the hospital.

Also, back on Sunday night around 11 p.m., police were called to Creston Street for a triple shooting. Boston EMS transported three gunshot victims. One of the victims, 36-year-old Jordan Keith of Hyde Park, was killed.
Boston 25 heard from a Creston Street man who said it’s scary to hear gunshots steps from your door.
Another neighbor told Boston 25 she’s had it with the shootings.
Just last week, there was another shooting in the middle of the day on Franklin Street, in Downtown Crossing, steps from the MBTA station.
Few details are available on each of these shootings as police continue to investigate.
