A man was shot and another man stabbed during a span of five hours in two different neighborhoods in Boston, officials said Friday.
The first incident occurred around 11:30 p.m. Thursday in Dorchester when Boston police and Boston Emergency Services personnel rushed to Crowell Street to investigate reports of a shooting.
The victim, a man, was rushed to an area hospital. His injuries were initially thought to be life-threatening, but Boston police said he is now expected to recover.
A Crowell Street resident told the Globe an errant bullet entered his home and traveled through the house before hitting a wall in a bedroom where two children were sleeping. No one was harmed, he said, but he is concerned about his family’s safety.
About five hours later, police and EMS personnel rushed to Everett Street in Allston, where a man had been reported stabbed near a supermarket.
The victim was found nearby and was treated at the scene then transported to Massachusetts General Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
No arrests have been made, but both cases are being actively investigated, police said.
