Everett Police responding to a report of a shooting on Broadway last Monday, November 5, found the victim with gunshot wounds to the back of the neck and arm and immediately arranged for transportation to Massachusetts General Hospital.
Because the investigation into the shooting is still on-going, the Everett police did not release any information about the case, but according to the police report, the incident took place at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Monday, November 5, near the Tedeschi’s food mart on Broadway.
When officers arrived and tried to interview the victim, he could tell police only that the perpetrator wore a dark sweatshirt and a pair of jeans. Officers reported that the victim was “uncooperative,” but was not able to determine if he knew his attacker or attackers. The report also stated that victim told officers that he had been approached by two men seeking a cigarette, but that when he told them he did not have one, they drew the weapon and shot at him.
The victim, who’s name is being withheld, because he is the victim of a crime, was in his early 20s and spoke only Spanish. Calls to Massachusetts General Hospital, about the victim’s condition, were not returned.
Anyone who may have information about the November 5 incident is encouraged to contact the Everett police.
