The two men shot to death on Friday night in Jackson Square have been identified by Boston Police. The two victims were shot dead near 277 Centre St. by the Mildred C. Hailey Apartments around 9:41 pm on Friday night. The two victims have been identified as Christopher Joyce, 23, and Clayborn Blair, 58. Both men were from Boston, and neither lived at the Mildred C.

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.
A woman suffered critical injuries and a man was also hurt late Tuesday night in a shooting that took place in the 100-block of School Street. The Globe spoke to neighbors who said they heard an argument between people in two cars shortly before the shots rang out. For more on the incident, please visit the Globe.
