This is a Proximity Analysis establishing that Murders in Boston will usually be surrounded by Churches, Liquor Stores and Police Stations.
The shooting deaths of four people in a Mattapan street early in the morning (Sept. 28, 1010), including a mother and her two-year-old son cradled in her arms, was the worst shooting rampage in Boston since 2005, and touched off waves of anger from public officials and residents of a neighborhood already plagued by violence.
Shortly after 1 a.m., gunfire led police to a gruesome scene, described by two law enforcement officials as a possible drug deal that went bad. The bodies of two male victims were found naked, sprawled on a sidestreet to Blue Hill Avenue in one of the city’s roughest sections. The woman, 21-year-old Eyanna Flonory, had been shot in the head, and her child, Amani Smith, she held fatally wounded. A third male also lay naked in the area of 40 Woolson St., clinging to life after attempting to flee. He remained in critical condition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center yesterday.
