Police investigate triple killings

BOSTON — Police are trying to figure out who shot and killed three people at a house party in Boston.

Officers responding to a report of a person shot found one woman and two men wounded inside an Intervale Street home in the city’s Roxbury neighborhood early Saturday. They were taken to Beth Israel Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

Police did not immediately name them, only saying they were all in their early 20s.

Investigators say they are looking for a vehicle they described as an older-looking maroon or red Mercury in connection with the killings.

Police also ask members of the community with information to call or text investigators anonymously on the CrimeStoppers Tip Line.

Boston Marathon winner giving medal to city

BOSTON — Boston Marathon winner Lelisa Desisa is giving his medal to the City of Boston this weekend as a tribute to the victims and families affected by the twin bombing near the race’s finish line.

The Ethiopian champion will participate in Sunday morning’s Boston Athletic Association 10K race. Afterward, he will present the medal to Mayor Thomas Menino in a ceremony on Boston Common.

Desisa announced his intention to donate the medal last month at a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, the longtime senator from Massachusetts.

Desisa says he’s giving the medal as a gesture of support with the victims and in memory of those who died that day.
