2 People Shot in Roxbury

Two people were shot in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood at Parker and Gurney streets early Wednesday evening.

Both people were in a car when someone opened the door and fired at them. They sustained non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen defended the practice of separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that her department is merely following laws. Speaking at a White House briefing Monday, Nielsen said the issue has been growing for years, the product of loopholes that have created an open border.
