are in the second day of investigating a and shooting that took place around 11 p.m. on Tuesday at a Blue Hill Avenue residence. The incident has an odd JP connection.
“We have to go through the stories and figure out fact from fiction, and we’ll go from there,” said Deputy Chief Charles Paris.
Paris said Thursday afternoon that police were attempting to interview the victim, a 25-year-old female who was taken to Boston Medical Center for a gunshot wound to the upper leg, a second time.
Paris said the victim was stable, but her injuries required surgery.
According to the information Milton Police currently have, the gunshot victim, her boyfriend and another man were at 143 Blue Hill Ave. on Tuesday night.
“It appears that three people were legitimately at the home when up to three assailants entered,” Paris said.
According to statements, one, possibly two, of the unknown men were armed. Paris said as many as five shots were fired.
When Milton Police responded to the scene, they found the victim in the front yard. The boyfriend called police a short time later from a residence on Essex Road in Milton. He reported to have fled the home during the assault.
The third man, a Boston resident, was located at the police station in Jamaica Plain sometime after the incident.
As for how the man ended up in Jamaica Plain, Paris said, “He alleges he walked there.”
The 3.9 mile walk between the two locations would take an hour and 20 minutes, according to a Google Maps search. The Milton Police station is much closer, at a distance of 1.2 miles — a 24 minute walk.
Milton Police are asking anyone who was in the area of the shooting on Tuesday night with information to call, 617-698-3800.
