At least one dead as gunfire erupts across city

Luis Troncoso, 20, was fatally shot in the head at a basketball court in the Southwest Corridor Park near the Stony Brook T stop around 4 p.m. today, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.

The shooting came not long before four men were shot, none fatally, at Whittemore Terrace and Hancock Street in Dorchester. The Globe reports officials do not believe the shootings (or the South End shooting of a 13-year-old) are related.

The Herald had reported police were responding to "angry mobs."

My deepest condolences go out to the Troncoso family. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sooo sorry for your loss.

To Luis, I will always remember the times we spent talking together in my office and hoopin'-it-up at Curtis...you were a beast on the hard wood!!! I really wish things would have turned out different you man. We will always miss you.

My heart also strongly goes out to Luis's friends. I know you dudes are really hurting and drunk with revenge right now, but please...enough of our young brothers and sisters have been needlessly taken away from us by death and the prison system. Don't get me wrong...be angry!!! I know I am!!! However, instead of more violence toward our own people, let's focus our anger toward trying to make things better for ourselves and our communities. A good way to channel some of these painful feelings is by getting actively involved in a community based organization such as: The Hyde Square Task Force, Spontaneous Celebrations, or Alternatives for the Community and the Environment (A.C.E) that tries to reduce the extremely high rates of youth violence in the hood. Remember...our little brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces, and cousins are always watching us, and taking really good notes on how to be in the world.

-Peace

im still in shock and in denial about everything . it's fucked up what happend to you but best believe karmas a bitch - it's hard posting up outside my crib , everytime i;m out there i expect to see you walk by or drive down my street and say whudup ' but truthfully i know thats not going to happen , my nigkahs death affected all of us and all them bitch ass mozart nigkahs are shitting on themselves right now cuz trust and believe it aint just boylston right now whos striking revenge & war. we collaberating w. others as well. its fucked up to say the violence isn't going to stop but it's reality . people are killed everyday , and it probably isnt ever going to stop ' the immaturity and assumptions of people are what got mata killed . since they made a mistake and tore so many souls and hearts apart its only fair to do the same back . it breaks my heart to know matas two little precious baby girls are going to grow up without a father all due to some fucking coward . may that nigkah BURN in hell and rest in PEACE TO THE CAPO !

attention people!!!this is your captain speaking internet thugging is non acceptable please refrain from making comments that can come back and bite you. lets try to stay positive on this site lets focus on keeping our homies memory alive and strong for as long as we can knowing that he wouldnt have any other way. He lived and died a "g" and no one can ever take that from him, he was of loyal and srong character and i know he is looking down upon us and supporting our decisions as we move forward in life without his presence beside us while always keeping him in our hearts ,for (mata) you we ride my nigga till the wheels fall off believe that. So point being, do what you gotta do but dont speak on it , its enough knowing that we do what we do for the right reasons regardless of how wrong it may seem to society at large. Be smart not dumb. one!

fuck them snitch niggas! die slow bitches

I think it says "I'm very sad that you were killed like this. It isn't right. I really miss you.".

I really, really miss you and know you're watching over us.

Back when Boston Crime was sort of a separate site, it became a place where folks could gather online to remember people they'd lost to violence, in their own way. I managed to pretty much ruin that when I moved the whole thing to the Universal Hub platform (so my apologies to folks). If people are beginning to come back (the page-view numbers are actually about the same as before), that's great, but, yes, it'll be a bit different than UH regulars might be used to.

Darn, my close friend, I really miss you so much. Shucks, sir, the neighborhood has been crazy without you, man. Believe what I say to be truthful, and yet, the sidewalk where you died still has markings that say "R.I.P. Capo". We all miss you. I sit back and cry all the time knowing you are not ever going to be back here with us. The neighborhood is crazy now and nothing is getting any better. Your daughter is so beautiful, my close friend. It is so true so as you would not even believe it yourself. I remember the first time we lit a joint. I was a young one and didn't know what I was doing with myself until you sat down and told me "Listen, close female friend, for what I speak is the truth. You need to straighten up your life because you are young and beautiful." Yes, I remember the words you said. It is hard because I usually remember everything that I hear, which is a good thing yet bad because you are gone now. Man, my close friend, you were the best and still are. Darn, sir, I love you and I miss you. Rest in peace, Mata, who also went by "Capo" for life. Stay my close friend and rest in peace. Please watch over all of us. We need your guidance through the hard times, man. BANG BANG BOYLSTON
