McGee, 21, of Dorchester, was taken to Boston Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Police did not identify the other man who was shot, a 19-year-old.

He also was taken to Boston Medical Center, where he remained in critical condition on Sunday, police said.

Officers found both men suffering from gunshot wounds after the ShotSpotter system, which acoustically detects gunshots, sent an alert to police.

A resident told an investigator that night that she heard several shots in rapid succession.

The Boston Police Homicide Unit urged anyone with information about the shooting to contact them at 617-343-4470.

Information can also be provided to police anonymously by calling the CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1-800-494-TIPS or by texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463).
