A man said he was shot while he was driving on the Lowell Connector Wednesday night, authorities said.
The man pulled into the XtraMart on Gorham Street around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday and reported that he was shot while driving inbound, according to Massachusetts State Police. He was first taken to Lowell General Hospital and then to Tufts Medical Center in Boston for a possible gunshot wound.
Lowell police said they found the vehicle the man had been driving nearby.
State police troopers shut down the Lowell Connector while Lowell police officers and state police K9 unit teams searched for evidence. The victim’s car was also examined for potential evidence.
"It was crazy last night. It looked like a scene from a movie," said Paolo Santos, who saw police cruisers, then an SUV with a shattered driver's-side window, outside his home.
The Lowell Police Department and Massachusetts State Police are investigating.
It wasn't clear Thursday afternoon if police had made any arrests or had any suspects in mind.
