    The two will be arraigned on several charges, including unlawful possession of a firearm, assault and battery and carrying a loaded firearm.

    This was not the only shooting overnight Saturday in Dorchester, according to police. One person died and three others were injured in four separate shootings, Boston police confirmed.

    The fatal shooting happened around 3:40 a.m. on Westview Way, which was blocked off for several hours as police investigated.

    The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries and later died.

    Two of the other shootings happened at 11:10 p.m. Friday on Stratton Street and 4:07 a.m. Saturday on Blue Hill Avenue.

    All four people were shot overnight near Franklin Park where the Caribbean Carnival and Parade was held Saturday. During the festival, people flood the streets to celebrate with music and wild costumes. It's unclear if the violence is connected. The event was marred by shootings in 2015.
