BOSTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) Members of Boston's religious community will meet with Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis on Thursday morning after the fatal shootings of three women in Dorchester.
The faith leaders plan to meet at the Twelfth Baptist Church in Roxbury at 10 a.m. in hopes of bringing the community together in a call to action. Residents also planned a meeting for Wednesday night at the Boys and Girls Club.
The meeting comes after a weekend of violence in the city. On Saturday, one man was killed and three others were injured after a shooting in Roslindale.
On Sunday night, three 22-year-old women identified as Genevieve Philip of Milton, Kirsten Lartey of Hyde Park, and Sharrice Perkins of Dorchester were shot in the area of 36 Harlem Street. All three died as a result of their injuries. A fourth woman suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and was expected to survive.
Sources tell FOX 25 that one of the victims in Sunday's shooting may have been targeted in an act of revenge. They add that drugs may have been involved and that two weapons could have been used in the killings.
Investigators are still searching for a white SUV with bright, halogen lights spotted near the scene.
