A woman was killed in a shooting in broad daylight in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood on Friday afternoon.

The shooting occurred around 12:40 p.m. in the area of Bowdoin and Washington streets. When they arrived, police said they found an adult female victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

She was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Manager Gale Scott of Down Home Delivery and Catering says the restaurant was busy preparing for lunch when the shooting happened.

"It is unnerving," Scott said. "We have been here a while and we haven't had anything happen here, that has unnerved us, or in and around the community, really, for the most part, we feel safe and at home here."

No arrests have been made. Boston police are asking anyone with information to call them at (617) 343-4470. Anonymous tips can also be left on the CrimeStoppers Tip Line by calling 1-800-494-TIPS or by texting the word "TIP" to 27463.
