Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis said there appear to be no connections among four shootings across the city Saturday, including one that left a man dead in Roslindale.

The other three shootings left a man critically wounded and six people injured.

“They seem to be different situations,” Davis said in an interview Sunday.

The shootings occurred within a 24-hour period and were spread across the city. Davis said police had solid leads in three of the incidents but so far had made no arrests.

A ninth person was shot late Sunday afternoon in Franklin Park and wounded in the shoulder, but was expected to survive his injuries, police said.
