Police are appealing for the public’s help after five people, including four “young adults”, were shot at a party in Dorchester late last night.

Mayor Michelle Wu and Police Superintendent Felipe Colon addressed media at the scene just before midnight.

“We really need the public’s help here,” Colon said, adding that police would accept anonymous tips or any other tips.

He said all five people shot had non-life-threatening injuries. The shooter opened fire on Greenwood Street, near the corner of Ellington Street, police said. One of the victims was a “juvenile.”

The attacker “shot into the group,” Colon added.

“It’s a terrible thing to be here tonight… we still feel the horror of the violence interrupting a family gathering,” the mayor said, adding that the city “still has work to do.” She reiterated her concern about the shooting in Spanish.

“Our emergency medical teams are already on site,” Wu added.

Colon said it was an “outdoor scene” at the gathering. There were no arrests, and one shooter “fired multiple shots.”
