Murder One: Cops Report Boston's First Homicide of 2010

Well, that didn't take long: 2010 claimed its first homicide victim a mere 135 minutes into the New Year, the Boston Police reported this morning. The victim, an unnamed 25-year-old Hispanic male, was discovered with a gunshot wound outside 315 Geneva Avenue in Dorchester around 2:15 this morning, and was pronounced dead at Carney Hospital. 

Bostonians can rejoice in having beaten New York in this category: the Big Apple didn't report its first homicide until after 3 am: a 21-year-old Brooklyn man was stabbed several times in the groin outside a party and later bled to death at his mother's house.
