Fight ends with woman shot off Castlegate Road in Dorchester; suspect arrested

Updated, 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

A fight between two women behind 27 Washington St. in Dorchester ended around 8:50 p.m. when a man shot one of the combatants.

The woman was taken to a local hospital with injuries not considered life threatening.

Witnesses told police the man fled into 20 Castlegate Road - the same building, which sweeps around the intersection of Washington and Castlegate, Boston Police report:

Officers knocked and announced themselves, but no one came to the apartment door. After multiple attempts, three occupants exited the apartment, and it was later determined that one was the shooting suspect.

Avante Young-Dabney, 19, of Dorchester, was charged with armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, illegal possession of a firearm, illegal possession of ammunition and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, police say.

Innocent, etc.

First the HBO special on Two Shots and Splash Stuart and now violence on Castlegate.

Get your Cross Colors pants and Bart Simpson T-Shirts while their hot. Guess I will be doing my laundry next to the IHOP in Kenmore Square this week.
