Search was underway for the suspect after a 18-year-old woman was shot in Boston's Seaport just after graduating from high school. The shooting took place near the corner of Pier 4 Boulevard and Northern Avenue on Thursday. The unidentified teen was rushed to the hospital. Police said she suffered "non-life-threatening gunshot injuries."
Boston Police Commissioner Michael Cox informed reporters that the teenager, who had recently graduated from Boston Collaborative High School, was expected to survive.
Following the incident, the suspect fled the scene and remains at large, with no arrests made yet. Cox told reporters that he believes the shooting wasn't a random act of violence.
"We believe that this was not a random event so we don’t believe the public has anything further to be worried about," Cox said, "but we are still investigating this."
Initial investigations suggest that a dispute may have triggered the shooting. Cox, alongside Suffolk County District Attorney Kevin Hayden, urged the public to assist in identifying the shooter and any potential accomplices.
"To say this is an unfortunate incident would be an understatement. This is a travesty. This should not happen," Kevin Hayden said. "High school students attending a graduation on a beautiful day like today shouldn’t have that day marked with a shooting taking place, and a young woman having to go to the hospital."
He asked the suspect or suspects to "turn themselves in immediately."
"We are in the sprawls of an active investigation," the DA said. "We need the community’s help. We need people who know something to say something. We will pursue this case vigorously."
