Weekend shootings leave one dead, another critical

Two shootings this weekend that occurred only hours apart left one man dead and another critically wounded.

Two shootings this weekend that occurred only hours apart left one man dead and another critically wounded.

The first shooting took place outside of a triple-decker home at 37 Ellington St. in Dorchester, police said. The 7:42 p.m. shooting left a 24-year-old man dead. It was the city’s seventh homicide this year, compared to 11 at this time last year.

A man leaving the home yesterday morning said he didn’t hear anything except a man come down the back stairway saying someone had been shot.

Detectives returned to the home yesterday to serve a search warrant and look for evidence.

The second shooting occurred about three hours later at a hair salon on Blue Hill Avenue, less than a block away from the Mattapan police station.

That man, in his 30s, was seriously wounded.

Police were still searching for the gunmen.

Anyone with information can call 617-343-4470 or text “tip” to “crime” (27463).
