A man is dead after being shot Wednesday in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood.

Police responded to a shooting on Washington Street in Egelston Square just before 3 p.m.

The man was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police do not believe the shooting to be random.

"This is a middle-of-the-day, brazen shooting," said Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins. "This is a vibrant community, hard-working people work here, and they deserve to be safe."
