Man found shot to death on Roxbury street corner

Boston police are investigating the death of a man who was found on a Roxbury street corner early this morning suffering from gunshot wounds.

The man was rushed from the intersection of Regent and Dabney streets at around 1 a.m. to Boston Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Today’s shooting is the 19th homicide in Boston this year, compared with eight at the same time last year, police said. Due to an error by police, an earlier version of this story reported a total of 18 homicides this year.
