One man was killed and two others wounded during an early morning shooting Saturday in Dorchester.

The three men, described as being in their 20s, were shot near the intersection of Nightingale and Wales streets just before 2:30 a.m., police told The Boston Globe.

One victim was pronounced dead at the scene, with the two others transported to area hospitals with injuries that police said weren't life-threatening.

Police have not made any arrests and no suspect descriptions were available.


A resident who lives near the scene told police that she awoke to find a bullet hole inches from her window.

“They shot in front of my window. And I was just sitting there. I don’t know more than that,” a shaken Sonia Vasquez told the Herald in Spanish yesterday as investigators searched the area for clues.

“I feel a little worried because I have three children, three grandchildren, one adult and one that has autism.”

Vasquez, 53, said frequent shootings in her neighborhood have her and her family living in fear.

Anyone with information about the attack is urged to leave an anonymous tip with police by calling 1 (800) 494-TIPS, or texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463).
