A father and son died after a double shooting in Framingham Friday night, authorities said.

Framingham police said that two men were shot around 11:30 p.m. on Second Street.

The shooting took place in the area of Beaver Park and Beaver Terrace, according to police. Officers blocked off the street in that area.

The father, 45-year-old James “Manny” Wade of Framingham, was brought to MetroWest Medical Center with gunshot injuries, police said. He later died from those injuries.

His son, 24-year-old James Wade of Framingham, was pronounced dead from apparent gunshot wounds at the scene.

Neither man lived at the apartments where they were shot, according to police.

"The preliminary investigation suggests this was an isolated incident," Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan said in a statement.

No arrests have been announced but the investigation is ongoing.

A person who lives in the cordoned-off area says this sort of incident is somewhat unusual for the area, but added he's had some concerns about his safety due to increased foot traffic at certain times of day.
