I am very shocked and here with the community members to say we need to get weapons out of our streets.” The shooting took place in a playground area. Erie-Ellington, located at the corner of Ellington and Erie Streets. “When a young person like this tragically loses their life to gun violence, I’ll repeat what the mayor said,” said Kevin Hayden, the Suffolk County District Attorney. “We need to tackle these weapons and get them off our streets.” “One murder in our city is too many murders, and it’s all tragic, but when it happens to someone in their tender years, what happens to a young teen, it obviously strikes at the heart and repairs the fabric of our communities and our children.” “Our hearts go out to this community,” Hayden said. “It goes to this young man’s family.” “There was a very quick response here and there is still a lot of evidence being collected and a lot of information coming in.” Anyone with any information is urged to contact Boston Police homicide investigators at 617-343-4470.
