There was no immediate word on a possible suspect. Further information was not provided.

An investigation is ongoing into Tuesday's shooting, which comes less than 24 hours after two people were shot on School Street in Jamaica Plain.

On Monday, Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden said that he's outraged by the calamitous violence that rocked Boston Sunday night, including two deadly shootings, one in Roxbury and another on the Dorchester/Roxbury line, a shooting in Dorchester, and a triple stabbing, also in Dorchester.
