"This is a pretty horrific scene and anytime there’s an aggravated assault and someone gets hurt, it’s very distressful that someone passes away," Kyes said. "I’m at a loss for words."

The person was seen on foot on Wesley Street, Kyes said.

The victim was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, where she later died. No further information was immediately available.
