Wilfred Peters obituary.
Thought it was fireworks. We heard somebody getting killed.
that’s a pretty random spot. lots of traffic through there but no businesses.
Two people shot in Mattapan too
A little concerning we haven’t heard from police if this was random or targeted...I live in the area, so this has us on edge a little bit. Walk by there everyday.
Very safe assumption that it was targeted. The police have indicated this. Reports indicate people heard arguing beforehand. Very little violence is totally random, though the double murder in JP a couple months ago seemed to be.
A lot of violence and violent crime is random.
The latest word from BPD is that there was an argument at the house there prior to the shooting beginning. That's all that's been said so far.

The deceased are Wilfred Peters, 26, of Brighton, and Jeffrey Montaque, 27, of Cambridge according to BPD this morning.
