Two people were shot outside of a barbecue on the front steps of a Dorchester apartment building after an apparent driveby shooting tonight, and one person was found stabbed in a separate incident in Roxbury, Boston police said. Officers responded to Monsignor Lydon Way shortly before 8 p.m. on a report of two people shot. Two bullet holes were seen in two of the apartment building’s front windows after police had cleared the scene about an hour later, as well as blood on the front steps and a knocked-over grill with chicken strewn about the sidewalk next to a children’s “Dora the Explorer” table. BPD spokeswoman Officer Nicole Grant said the victims’ injuries were not considered life-threatening. The gunman remained at large. Tony Tran, a neighbor, said he rushed out of his home after hearing between five and seven gunshots and heard a car rushing from the scene. “The police said the car stopped and someone shot the people,” said Tran. Meanwhile, at about 9:15 p.m., police responded to Wabon Street in Roxbury for a report of a person stabbed in the chest. The victim’s condition was not immediately available.
