Boston police are investigating a double shooting Monday night in Southie. BPD responded to a call about 11:20pm near the corner of O’Callahan Way and Logan Way in the Old Harbor Housing Development. Two teenage males (ages 15 and 16) were found shot. Both victims were taken to local hospitals where later one died.
No arrests have been made. According to Channel 7, BPD Commissioner Bill Evans is asking for the public’s help. “We’re doing a canvas search right now, going door to door and doing a line search looking for information, were looking at cameras. But we need the public’s help on this. Obviously a cold night out here, I don’t think there were many people out. We have one or two witnesses that were taken to homicide but as always we need the public’s help,” Evans said.
