Boston Police responded to an early Sunday morning shooting, just after 2:30 AM in the area of Beach and Hudson Streets.
Upon arrival officers located two adult males who had been shot and both were taken to area hospitals with life-threatening injuries.
BPD says that officers were given the description of a suspect vehicle and that vehicle had been located. “Officers maintained surveillance of the vehicle, and requested additional units to the area to conduct a traffic stop. As responding officers approached the intersection, the suspect vehicle accelerated, fleeing the area and refusing to stop for officers,” BPD said.
During a pursuit the driver of the vehicle lost control of the vehicle and eventually two occupants in the vehicle who have been identified as Ven Bunton, 23, of Lowell, Massachusetts and Alexio Carmello-Marquez, 24, of Tampa, FL were arrested.
