Four shot outside Burke High School, one dead

Boston Police report a 17-year-old is dead from a barrage around 1:15 p.m. outside Burke High School this afternoon that also injured two other teens and a woman in her 60s.

City Council President Michelle Wu ended today's council meeting by announcing the shootings.

Photos from the scene.

The Dorchester Reporter reports the murder victim was a student at the Burke. The Reporter adds workers at the nearby Sun Pizza heard six or seven shots.

The Suffolk County District Attorney's office says:

Anyone with information on the incident can feel safe coming forward: Massachusetts’ Witness Protection Fund exists to protect witnesses from retaliation. Suffolk County leads the Commonwealth in its use, and the historic low number of homicides in Boston last year contributed to fewer petitions being filed and more funds remaining than in prior years. Anyone with information on today’s homicide and non-fatal shootings is urged to share it with BPD Homicide at 617-343-4470.

Please spare us feel good story's on the safety of kids going to and from school in Boston. These poor kids don't have to learn about the Boston Massacre in their history books they have lived through it.

A damn shame. Today in Boston, a young man is dead, 3 others wounded. FOR WHAT? WHY? No excuse No valid reason. To the shooter, you are a gun using punk thug coward.

I hope you never have a peaceful day or ever sleep good at night.

Be a man, instead of punk ass running and hiding.
Turn yourself in, face the consequences for what you did.

But let's be serious, a (f that, multiple) student(s) know who did this. Someone needs to speak up and soon, nothing at the age of 17 is seriours enough to MURDER someone over.

Hopefully someone comes forward, even if it's silently.

A mother in Boston thought her kid was simply going to school and now she'll never see him again.

Man the fuck up and do whats right, speak up!

out of respect for the family and friends i think those pictures of what is clearly the body under the white tarp needs to be taken down. i do not even know this young man but i just squirmed looking at the photos.

Adam didn't put the photos up. Go to Facebook, connect with the photographer and put the request in there. If they don't listen, go up the chain and complain to Facebook. Furthermore, you can always avoid squirming around by not clicking on links which explicitly state you'll see photos.

What did you honestly expect to see when you clicked on photos of the scene? Rainbows and pretty butterflies?

Don't click the link if you don't want to see the photos.....obviously you were curious enough to see the crime scene yourself.

Arm them with firearms and tasers or at least tasers for crying out loud.

No thanks, there's enough guns in school already. I feel that if they do carry weapons it would send the wrong message to the students(ie that "guns/weapons" solve issues), i mean its school not prison.
