Three people were wounded in two separate shootings—one of them a drive-by—earlier this month in Jamaica Plain.

On Dec. 6 around 10:20 p.m., two people were wounded in a drive-by shooting on South Street near the McBride Street intersection, according to a Boston Police report obtained by the Gazette.

The victims were passengers in a car parked on South Street. The driver of a vehicle heading northbound toward central JP fired five to six shots at the parked car. One victim was wounded in the shoulder, the other in the knee. A third person in the parked car was uninjured.

The suspect’s vehicle, which police did not describe, fled north toward Centre Street.

On Dec. 9 around 9:30 p.m., police found a male victim suffering from an apparent gunshot wound in the back at 87 School St. in Egleston Square. A police report obtained by the Gazette does not describe how the victim was shot. He was transported to a hospital. The shooting location is diagonally across the street from the Egleston Square Peace Garden, a park dedicated to victims of violence.
