Update: Victim Identified in Death Investigation in the Area of Columbia Road and Devon Street


At about 4:37pm, on Sunday, February 21, 2016, officers from District District B-2 (Roxbury) responded to a call for a person shot in the area of Columbia Road and Devon Street.  On arrival, officers located a male victim suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound.  The victim, suffering from life threatening injuries, was transported to an area hospital where it was later determined that the injury he suffered was in fact a stab wound.  The victim, who has now been identified as Dion Hopkins, 15, of Roxbury, later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased.

Investigators later identified and arrested a 16 year old juvenile and placed him in custody without incident.  That suspect has since been arraigned in Dorchester District Court and is being held without bail on a charge of Murder, Delinquent to Wit.
