A man was shot on a Dorchester side street and then drove about a half mile before crashing at a major intersection Tuesday night, Boston police said.
The man was removed from the vehicle and rushed to an undisclosed hospital with life-threatening injuries, said Officer Shandra Pinto a department spokeswoman.
Police said they received multiple 911 calls and a Shotspotter report of gunfire about 9:27 p.m. Tuesday near 81 Kingsdale St. And a few minutes later, police were called to a motor vehicle crash at the intersection of Blue Hill and Talbot avenues, which is about a half mile from the Kingsdale Street crime scene.
A juvenile was taken into custody on illegal gun charges, but their connection to the shooting – if there is one – is under investigation by detectives, Pinto said.
No other arrests have been made, she said.
No further information is currently available.
