Saturday Double Shooting on Boylston street

I was very saddened to hear about the shooting on Boylston Street on Saturday. I saw there was a vigil held on Sunday. Does anyone have any more information on what happened?

Often in situations like this, Boston Police and DA office will not release information about the victims, the circumstances, and progress the have or have not made to protect the integrity of the investigation, the rights of others, but also to not fuel retaliation and further violence.
