“That’s horrifying to know that I live just down the block and that happened," resident Adam Liebman said. "That’s a tragedy."

One victim is in serious condition after getting shot multiple times. The second victim took himself to the hospital. Both are expected to recover.

The shooting suspect remains at-large, police said.

Despite a police investigation that shutdown the neighborhood for a few hours Friday morning, those who live around Fenway Park said they generally feel that the area is pretty safe.

“That’s scary and I hope the person’s apprehended,” said Lance McNaughton who lives near Fenway.

“I was here with a couple friends after work,” said Matthew Moffat, who was at Game On Thursday night, but left before the shooting.

Boston Police were on scene for about three hours Friday morning, closing down Brookline Avenue while they set up a crime scene perimeter. Several evidence markers could be seen scattered around the corner of Brookline Avenue and Jersey Street.

Boston Police collected evidence in that area, including some clothing. They also had a silver sedan towed away from the scene.

"It’s crazy," McNaughton said. "I mean, it’s scary to hear about shootings in any neighborhood and when it’s that close by, you figure a stray bullet can go through a window and who knows what could happen.”

Boston Police have since cleared the scene and Brookline Avenue has reopened, but the investigation into the shooting continues.

“I was literally walking down these streets last night," Moffat said. "I mean, that could have been me. That could have been one of my friends that got shot and that’s pretty horrifying, honestly.”
