No one was injured.

No injuries have been reported after shots were fired on busy Gallivan Boulevard Tuesday.

The Boston firefighters union had said in a statement Tuesday that its members assigned to Ladder 6 were in the direct vicinity of the incident but they were relieved to confirm none of their members or apparatus were struck by the gunfire.

The new video released Wednesday shows the ladder truck right at the intersection as the shots are fired.

The firefighters union also expressed gratitude to Boston police and state police for their quick response and for ensuring the safety of their members and the public.

Police are still searching for whoever can be seen in the video wearing sweatpants and a hoodie, firing several shots.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call the Boston Police Department at 1-800-494-TIPS.
