An investigation continues in Boston's Charlestown neighborhood after a man was found fatally shot inside a home.

Boston police responded to call of a person shot at a home on Mystic Place shortly before 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, officers said.

Police said that officers arrived and found the man, 33-year-old Jawad Muhammed, of Mattapan, dead at the scene.

Police are investigating after a man was shot dead at a home in Charlestown early Saturday morning.

Neighbors told NBC 10 Boston the incident took place at the same home where there was a gathering of 50 to 60 people about a week ago.

Neighbors said they heard and saw a crowd at the home Friday night.

"We just heard some running and some yelling coming down the private way here, and we popped out of bed and looked and saw a dozen or two dozen people kind of moving out, and the yelling got more and more panicked," a witness told NBC 10 Boston. "Heard a car door slam, some people running, and then it was pretty quiet for about 15 minutes until we heard an ambulance pull up."

Investigators roped off a set of stairs at the back of the house and guarded the front of the house for several hours.

No additional details have been made public.

Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call detectives at 617-343-4470 or anonymously by calling at 800-494-TIPS or by texting the word "TIP" to 27463.
