BOSTON (AP) - A shooting in Boston’s Dorchester section ended in an apparent standoff after authorities searched for a suspect.

A man in his 20s was shot around 5 p.m. Thursday and taken to Boston Medical Center. He is expected to survive. Police were told that a suspect “may have run” into a house on the street.

The Boston Globe reports (https://bit.ly/1PbEvnD ) SWAT team members left the house and cleared the area that night after police surrounded the home.

Boston Police Superintendent Bernie O’Rourke says that police led a number of witnesses from the house, but a suspect was not found inside. No arrests have been made.

O’Rourke says it’s too early to say if the suspect and victim knew each other.
