Three men were shot on a Roxbury street late on Sunday night, and all of the victims are expected to survive, Boston police said.
The men, two in their 30s and one in his 40s, were shot around 11:10 p.m. outside 26 Zeigler St., Boston police spokesman James Kenneally said. He said police were trying to determine if the shooting was gang-related.
A law enforcement official briefed on the case said a dark-colored SUV with tinted windows drove by, and a person fired shots into a cookout. The vehicle fled the scene.
No arrests have been made.
A large crowd at the scene offered little information to responding officers, Lieutenant Detective Michael McCarthy said.
In an unrelated shooting, a man in his 20s was shot in the ankle at 30 Annunciation Road in Mission Hill about 11:15 p.m.
The victim is expected to survive. There were no arrests in that incident.
McCarthy said the victim was very uncooperative with police and provided no information to responding officers.
