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.
