Police arrested a suspect Monday morning in connection with a fatal stabbing in Dorchester Sunday afternoon.
Shortly before 4:40 p.m., officers responded to Columbia Road and Devon Street for a report of a person shot. When they arrived, officers found the victim, a 15-year-old boy, suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound, but was later determined to be a stab wound.
The teen, who has not been formally identified, was taken to Boston Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.
Just after 8:15 a.m. Monday, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office announced an arrest had been made in connection to the stabbing, and that the suspect, a 16-year-old, was set to be arraigned later in the day at Dorchester Municipal Court. The DA’s office was waiting to release the suspect’s name.
