The area around Grew Hill on the Roslindale/Hyde Park line was rocked by several loud booms shortly after 5:30 p.m., apparently caused by somebody firing off the largest shells he could buy in New Hampshire or some other godforsaken place from Grew Hill Road, at the top of the hill.
Around 9:45 p.m. near the Home Market at Belgrade Avenue and Walworth Street.
Suspects are described as two Hispanic men in all black clothing, one about 5'11" in a mask, the other about 20, with long black hair and a goatee. They ran up Walworth towards Washington Street.

Because of the severity of the man's injuries, the homicide unit has been summoned.
