Two Wounded in Shooting But Will Not Tell Cops Where It Happened

Boston Police confirm that two people were shot Thursday afternoon -- but it's no longer clear if the violence actually took place near Forest Hills Station. Officer Stephen McNulty said the two's injuries aren't considered life threatening. Boston Police initially told the Globe the violence took place at Arborway and Morton just before 5 p.m. Thursday. However, a more detailed account released Friday indicated that the victims and witnesses police spoke to were "not very cooperative," according to McNulty. The victims and witnesses would not say where the shooting took place or what caused it, according to police.

From the Mayor: National Night Out

Last Monday and Tuesday night, I visited neighborhoods across Boston, from Hyde Park to Brighton, from Mattapan to East Boston, for “National Night Out” with members of the Boston Police Department and Commissioner William Evans. We spent time with residents of all ages in nearly every neighborhood, playing games, eating food and ice cream, and talking to as many people as possible. It was a great turnout, and I’d like to thank everyone for coming together and participating in this annual summer celebration. Of course, National Night Out is about much more than the fun activities. It is about raising national, and critical, awareness of community policing.
