The man who died after the shooting rampage in Roxbury Monday afternoon took his own life, according to Boston Police who also confirmed that the two women victims are “going to survive.”
A police spokesman on Tuesday said the man died by suicide, and that he perished from a gunshot wound.
The shooting happened along Schuyler Street around 2:30 p.m. Monday. Police responded to the street near Franklin Park and found three people suffering from gunshot wounds: the man who was pronounced dead at the scene, and two women who were transported to local hospitals.
The conditions for both women have been upgraded to non-life threatening, according to Boston Police Sgt. Detective John Boyle.
“They’re both going to survive,” he said.
Police said the shooting was an “isolated incident” and the threat to the neighborhood was over quickly. Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins had said the shooting “appears possibly to be a domestic incident.”
Police won’t be releasing the man’s name until full family notification. The names of the two wounded women will not be released.
“The case is still very active,” Boyle said.
Police said if anyone has any information about the incident, they should contact the Boston Police Homicide Unit at 617-343-4470. People can anonymously leave tips at 1-800-494-TIPS.
