BOSTON — Boston police are investigating a daylight shooting that left one person dead on Friday.

Officers responding to a report of shots fired in the area of 46 Corona Street in the city’s Dorchester section just after 2 p.m. found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the head a few doors down, the Boston Police Department and the Suffolk District Attorney’s Office said in a press conference.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, police say.

“Our office in law enforcement will do everything we can to bring the perpetrator of this incident to justice,” Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden said.

Video from the scene showed a massive emergency response with dozens of cruisers, crime tape, and detectives scouring the neighborhood for evidence.

There have been no arrests made in connection with the shooting.

Officials asked the public to reach out to law enforcement if they have any information that may help investigators.

“We need the community’s help. If anyone knows anything about what has happened here, we need help, we need assistance,” Hayden said.

The victim’s name has not been released but police say they will likely reveal the identity Saturday after an autopsy and once family is notified.
