Gunman shoots into crowd in Boston neighborhood, wounding 5

BOSTON (AP) — Police on Thursday were searching for a man who fired into a crowd in Boston, wounding five people, including a child.

The shooting occurred Wednesday evening as a crowd gathered in the city’s Dorchester neighborhood. An 11-year-old child, a 21-year-old man, a 20-year-old man, a 21-year-old woman and a 20-year-old woman were shot, but no one had life-threatening injuries, the Boston Police Department said in a statement. None of the victims were identified.

Mayor Michelle Wu, who visited the scene on Wednesday evening, said residents enjoying a summer night should not have to witness something like this.

“On a summer night like this, we want to make sure that every street and every community, every part of our city is enjoyable,” she told reporters. “Unfortunately, tonight we saw that we still have a lot of work to do.”

Police did not say what may have prompted the shooting, adding that no one had been arrested Thursday.
