Police say they continue to investigate a shooting near Salem and Pierce St. that left an Everett man with non-life threatening injuries shortly after 10 p.m. Friday night.
The victim, whose name was withheld by police, was transported to Mass General Hospital in stable condition.
According to police scanner transmissions, the suspect was described as a male wearing a hooded sweatshirt. A silver Nissan was also sought by authorities in connection to the attack.
Malden Police Lt. Det. Marc Gatcomb said that "numerous shell casings" were found at the scene. Witnesses put the shots at anywhere from four to eight.
Some social media users reported hearing shots, assuming they were firecrackers related to the Fourth of July holiday.
"The investigation is ongoing at this time to include a possible motive," Gatcomb said.
Anyone with information about the incident should contact the Malden Detective's Unit at 781-397-7181
