Boston police are investigating two homicides that happened this weekend in Dorchester, officials said.

Officers first responded at about 2:48 a.m. Saturday to a Doubletree hotel on Mount Vernon Street for reports of a fight, police said Monday in a statement.


Upon arrival, officers were told that a party in one of the hotel rooms had turned violent, with a fight between two of the male partygoers spilling into the street.

Both of the men suffered stab wounds and were taken to local hospitals, where one was pronounced dead.
