No Reported Injuries in South Street Shooting
A blue Honda fit had a backseat window blown out in an apparent drive-by shooting in the same block as a December shooting that left one man wounded.
Police say there were no reported injuries in a "shots fired" incident on South Street Friday afternoon.
Scanner reports indicated a drive-by shooting had taken place. A blue Honda Fit, cordoned off by police tape, had its left backseat window blown out. Officers were investigating the car and nearby houses for evidence, including bullets. The car had Massachusetts plates.
Initial scanner reports said police were seeking four men. At least one man was detained at the scene.
The incident is in the same block as a Dec. 11 shooting that left one man wounded.
There may be a connection between the Dec. 11 shooting and the Dec. 22 arrest of Niko Flores, 17. Police say Flores chucked a box containing guns and crack cocaine out the window of a Boylston Street apartment as they entered to conduct a search warrant.
According to a separate police report, the person arrested as a result of that search, whose name was redacted from the police report, told officers that he was one of the men seen in a surveillance video fleeing from the area of the shooting.
As of last week, no further charges had been filed against Flores, police said.
