16-year-old girl shot to death in Codman Square

A 16-year-old girl was killed in a shooting on Sunday evening in Codman Square that left two other people with injuries.

According to Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins, the victim is Jucelena Gomes, who was found suffering from a gunshot wound outside of 551 Washington St. around 6:25 p.m.

“Two male victims, suffering from non-life threatening gunshot wounds, were transported by Boston EMS to local area hospitals,” according to Boston Police.

Rollins said that “Suffolk prosecutors are working in close collaboration with the Boston Police Department Homicide Unit and leading the investigation into the shooting that took one life and forever altered two others. “Violence has no place in Suffolk County. We will hold those who would commit acts of violence accountable. We are actively looking for the individual or individuals responsible for this shooting and theft of a beautiful life."

Anyone with information is strongly urged to contact the Boston Police Homicide Unit at 617-343-4470.
