Three men were shot, two fatally, in Boston's Roxbury section at about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Just minutes later, three men were shot in Boston's Mattapan neighborhood. One died. The other two are expected to survive.

At about 1 a.m. Thursday, authorities say 21-year-old Ashlee Berryman, of Malden, was shot and killed outside near an Everett restaurant.

None of the other victims have been publicly identified. No arrests have been announced.

There is no indication that any of the shootings are related.
