By Globe Staff 

A man was shot inside a home in Mattapan on Thursday afternoon, but is expected to survive, police said.

Boston police were called to Walk Hill Street just before 1:20 p.m. and found a man shot in the arm and shoulder, authorities said.


He was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. His injuries are non-life threatening, officials said.

The daytime violence came after three people were shot Wednesday night in the Mission Hill section of Roxbury, in a deadly attack that claimed the life of a 20-year-old man.

This is a breaking story and will be updated when more information becomes available.
