A woman was shot to death in a Roxbury convenience store in the middle of a sparkling autumn afternoon, one of seven shooting victims during a bloody 24 hours in the city.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene of a double shooting at Quick Stop market on Warren Avenue — nestled between a church and the Boston police substation that houses the SWAT team. Her name and age were not released.

A male victim was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with a non-life-threatening wound after he was shot in the left side about 3 p.m.

The male victim staggered into the nearby Crown Fried Chicken holding his stomach, said manager Iqval Khurhed, who called 911.

“He looked outside, like someone was following him,” said Khurhed, who described the male victim as an employee of the Quick Stop. “Then he fell down and closed his eyes.”

As Khurhed called for help, another man ran inside, crouched down and shook the victim’s head, shouting, “Can you hear me? Can you hear me?”

Moments later, as the second man tried to put the victim into his car, police arrived and ordered him to put his hands up, Khurhed said.

The man told them he was the victim’s cousin, and the victim was rushed to the hospital by ambulance, Khurhed said.

“We feel sorry for him,” Khurhed said. “He’s our neighbor.”

About 90 minutes later, around 4:29 p.m., a man was shot in the foot on Geneva Avenue. The uncooperative victim was taken to a local hospital.

Then, around 6:13 p.m., police found two men shot on Boylston Street near Egleston Square in Jamaica Plain. One suffered life-threatening injuries, police said. Both were transported to local hospitals.

According to a witness who was interviewed by police, a young man was shot in the head while riding a bicycle. The other person was shot in the leg but staggered away, she said.

The citywide mayhem broke out well before dawn when cops responded to a call at 1:49 a.m. of a man suffering from life-threatening injuries after he was shot near 151 Blue Hill Ave. in Dorchester. A second gunshot victim from the same area was self-transported with non-life-threatening injuries to Boston Medical Center, police officer spokesman Eddy Chrispin said.
