BOSTON (AP) — Boston police say gunfire broke out during a party in the city’s Dorchester neighborhood early on Christmas morning, leaving one man dead.

Police spokeswoman Nicole Grant says the victim, who was not immediately identified, was pronounced dead after being shot on Wales Street.

Grant said police responded to an emergency call at about 4 a.m. on Wednesday for the shooting that occurred after a fight apparently broke out during the party. Officers also investigated reports of shots being fired at two other locations in the same area at about that time.

A woman who was in a car that was hit by gunfire was treated at a hospital for injuries from shattered glass.

Grant says police are interviewing witnesses and trying to determine what happened. No arrests have been reported.
