‘Young child’ shot, killed in Boston neighborhood, mayor says – WCVB Boston

A juvenile male was shot and killed on a neighborhood street in Boston just before sunset on Wednesday evening, police said. The incident happened around 7:30 p.m. along Ellington Street. Boston Mayor Michelle Wu said the victim was a “young child” but authorities declined to provide any additional information about the victim. “Anytime there is any incident of gun violence in our community, it is absolutely unacceptable,” Wu said. “When we see the loss of life, and particularly a young child, we are all robbed of the potential, the life, that was ahead of this young person. I am deeply devastated and here with community members to say we need to get guns off of our streets.”The shooting took place in the area of the Erie-Ellington Playground, located at the corner of Ellington and Erie streets. “When someone as young as this loses their life tragically to gun violence, I will echo what the mayor has said,” Suffolk County District Attorney Kevin Hayden said. “We need to address and get these guns off our streets.””One homicide in our city is one too many, they’re all tragic, but when it happens to someone of tender years, what happens to a young teenager, that obviously strikes right at the very heart and right the very fabric of our communities and our children,” Hayden said. “Our heart goes out to this community. It goes out to this young man’s family.””There was a very quick response here and there’s still a lot of evidence being gathered and a lot of information coming in,” Hayden said. Anyone with any information is urged to contact Boston police homicide detectives at 617-343-4470.
