EGLESTON SQ.—A male victim was shot in the leg outside a party at 93 Bragdon St. early in the morning of Nov. 3, according to a Boston Police Department (BPD) report.

The victim, whose name and age were redacted from the report, was treated for a non-life-threatening injury, according to BPD.

Officers responded to the area around 2:30 a.m. following a call about group fighting as well as a report from the BPD’s automated “ShotSpotter” gunshot detection system. A resident of the building said that a group of men had started fighting at a party she had held that night. After being told to leave, the men started yelling and fighting, after which the resident “heard several shots,” according to the BPD report.

Officers found a “short trail of blood” on the street and sidewalk nearby, along with bullet fragments and a wallet containing a man’s credit cards and ID. Apparently connecting the ID to a car, other officers pulled over the vehicle a short time later in the South End. The wounded man was a passenger in the vehicle, according to the report. The victim allegedly confirmed he was shot following the Bragdon Street party, and he was taken to the nearby Boston Medical Center for treatment of a gunshot wound to the left calf.

The vehicle was towed to Jamaica Plain’s District E-13 Police Station for evidence collection.
