One person is dead and four others injured after a shooting incident at a Fourth of July cookout in Lynn, Massachusetts, on Saturday, the Essex District Attorney said.

Police responded to the area of 134 Fayette Street Essex Street just before 10 p.m., where they found five people who had been shot, the district attorney's office said.

One of the victims, a 35-year-old man from Lynn, was taken to Salem Hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was identified Sunday as Noe Hernandez.

Another man was transported to a Boston hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The three other people who were shot are expected to survive.

No arrests have been made in connection to the incident, which remains under investigation.

The incident wasn't the only shooting in Massachusetts on July 4.

Two people are being treated for injuries after a shooting in Roxbury Saturday night, Boston police said. Officers received a call about 9:36 p.m. for a shooting on Copeland Street near Little Scobie Playground.

One of the victims was taken to a nearby hospital while the other went to a hospital on their own, according to police. Neither had life-threatening injuries.

Police are investigating the incident, and haven't given out more details, including if the suspected shooter or shooters are at large.

The shootings came as Massachusetts was observing the Fourth of July, and after several people died in shootings and a stabbing around the area in the days before the holiday.
