BOSTON (AP) — Police have tightened security around Boston's iconic Fenway Park after one person was killed and three others wounded in an early morning shooting.

Boston police said the shooting happened around 2 a.m. Thursday near a bar adjacent to the ballpark, which is playing host to a high school football team. The game between Needham and Wellesley was scheduled to go on.

Authorities did not immediately release details about the victims.

Boston police superintendent-in-chief William Gross told Fox 25 television that investigators were asking anyone with cell phone video of the shooting to contact authorities. Gross expressed frustration at the timing of the shooting, telling the statin: "For God's sake, it's Thanksgiving."

Police tape sealed off the area on Yawkey Way, the main street next to the park.
