A police investigator looked for evidence Friday on Adams Street after a triple shooting on nearby Hecla Street.

A party on Helca Street in Dorchester ended in violence when three men were shot Friday night, according to Boston police.

One of the victims was taken to Brigham & Women’s Hospital with life-threatening injuries, said Officer Neva Coakley, a spokeswoman for Boston Police. The two other victims were taken to other hospitals and were expected to survive, she said on Saturday. Their identities were not released.

As police cordoned off the area Friday night, groups of young men and women poured into nearby Adams Street. Two young women were crying, covering their faces, saying they wanted to go home.

Coakley said the shots were the “result of a party.” One witness said the party had been held for a young man who had died.

Members of the gang unit, special operations, and the canine unit responded to the scene after the initial call came in shortly before 11:30 p.m.

Charlie Sierra, who lives around the block, said he heard people yelling and went to see what was going on.

“All I’ve heard was the commotion, so I came outside,” he said. “Sad. Always with the young crowds.”

No further information was released about his condition. If anyone has details about that shooting, they are asked to contact District 2 detectives at 617-343-4275.
