In the early hours of Monday, a woman was killed and five others were injured when a gunman opened fire on Irma Street in Dorchester, Boston, Massachusetts, US. Reports to police first came in at 12:29 a.m. Upon arrival to the scene, police discovered the woman and pronounced her dead at the scene.

Homicide detectives placed markers on the sidewalk to mark evidence in the investigation, and police used yellow crime scene tape to block off Irma Street and several other locations to prevent others from tampering with the investigation. The five people who were injured are currently recovering at local hospitals. Three of the five injured transported themselves to the hospitals, while the other two were escorted to hospitals by Boston EMS.

On Tuesday, the deceased woman was identified as 38-year-old Aisha Shepard, who lived in Roxbury. The Boston Police Department is also working on this case as it unfolds. The Boston Neighborhood Trauma Team is also providing 24/7 service and assistance for anyone needing emotional support during this challenging time.
