BOSTON (AP) - Police have released the names of the three men killed in two separate shootings just minutes apart in Boston earlier this week.

The victims were among five people shot and killed in the city and two suburbs in a five-hour span late Wednesday and early Thursday. Police Commissioner William Evans says the Boston shootings appear to be gang-related.

The two men killed in the city’s Roxbury neighborhood at about 10:15 Wednesday have been identified as 28-year-old Andrew Reed and 20-year-old Angel Oller. A third man was shot but is expected to survive.

Just minutes later, three men were shot in the city’s Mattapan section. Police say 21-year-old Darwin Adilas of Randolph died and the other two men survived.

There have been no arrests in either Boston shooting.
