As Christmas candles begin to appear on Dorchester’s Crowell Street, a more solemn flame flickered yesterday in front of one home.

A memorial candle, several teddy bears and a bouquet of flowers sat yesterday in front of a triple-decker where a 36-year-old man was gunned down Monday evening, the city’s 70th homicide of the year.

The victim has not yet been identified and Boston police are seeking information about the shooting. CrimeStopper cards and fliers are tucked into mailboxes up and down the street.

Longtime Crowell Street resident Fritzner Dubuisson said the neighborhood can be quiet for years at a time, but that things can change depending on the residents in just one or two households on the short boulevard.

“Six years ago, it was awful,” he said, “then it was good. Now it changes, maybe it’s got worse.”

Calls to the CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1-800-494-TIPS are anonymous.
