Mattapan shooting leads to gun arrest outside Boston Medical Center

Thu, 06/26/2014 - 17:57

After a man was shot on Morton Street Thursday afternoon, his boys went up to Boston Medical Center. And then another crew, considerably less friendly with the victim, showed up as well, around 6 p.m. Police, who typically accompany shooting victims to the hospital for just this sort of reason, interceded and discovered one of the non-friends had a gun. The gunman was arrested and his weapon seized before he could use it.

Fireworks over Dorchester Bay

For the second time this month, a commercial fireworks display went off over Dorchester Bay last night. Although, both of these were paid for using private funds for a private event, given the fact that we all have to listen to them, shouldn't the display be announced in advance so that people can make arrangements to get to a vantage point to see them?
