UPDATE: Boston Police report the victim's name was Arthur Stewart.
Brian D'Amico reports a 19-year old was shot around 8:30 on Sanford St. He was taken away in serious enough shape to have the homicide unit called in, just in case.
What happened to the map which shows all of this year's shootings for Boston?
It's a homicide map, not shootings. At the top of the page, under the 'r' in Universal Hub, click on 'Crime.'
I had thought there was one which covered just shootings. Must have seen it elsewhere.
i heard through family he has died he is a younger cousin of mine so sad i hope they made a mistake
The victim, a 19-year-old, has passed away. Also another 19-year-old was killed on Wheatland Avenue in Dorchester two hours prior to the Sanford St shooting.
With all of the shootings recently, I expected that sooner or later there would be one in my old neighborhood. I used to live just around the corner, on Caddy Road. And I knew the folks who lived in that house. I don't know if the same family was still there.
[Trivia note: That house actually appeared in a movie way back when. "Dealing", starring Barbara Hershey and John Lithgow, among others, had a couple of scenes filmed on Sanford Street.]
