Boston police responded to the parking lot of TechBoston Academy in Dorchester around 5:40 p.m. for a report that two people were shot, Boston Superintendent-in-chief Gregory Long said during a press conference.

When Boston police arrived, he said they found that a 31-year-old male teacher and 17-year-old male student were both suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

Long said that a preliminary investigation indicated that the student and teacher were in the parking lot preparing for a school event when someone opened fire on them.
