A shooting in Mattapan early Tuesday left a toddler and at least three others dead, police said. There have been no arrests and police have asked for the public’s help in investigating the incident.

Across the city, residents expressed outrage over the deadliest killing in Boston in nearly five years.

“I want to see them brought to justice as quickly as possible,” said Boston Mayor Tom Menino. “And also, when they are brought to justice, that they never see the light of day.”

We speak with Rev. Jeffrey Brown, executive director of Boston’s TenPoint Coalition, about the escalating violence in Boston.
