One Injured in Early Morning South End Shooting

One victim was treated for non-life threatening injuries following a shooting early Friday morning.

One person was shot in the arm as gunfire erupted in the South End early Friday morning.

Officers from District 4 responded to reports of shots fired in the area of Shawmut Avenue and Worcester Street, and, upon arrival, discovered an individual suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the left arm, according to police reports.

Police spoke with the victim who stated he heard three or four shots and began running, at which point he was grazed in the arm by gunfire. He was transported to Boston Medical Center to receive treatment for his injuries.

After speaking with other witnesses who heard the shots but did not see anyone or any car, police learned a 911 caller had provided a description of a possible suspect and getaway car.

The caller stated he observed a grey car fleeing the scene and a unknown male wearing a blue shirt and baseball cap running towards a brown car on Mass. Ave. while carrying what looked like a gun.

A description of the suspect and involved vehicles was broadcast by police and a car matching the description was stopped by state police at Route 28 and Broadway Street in Somerville a short time later.

Witnesses were brought in to identify the suspects but were not able to do so.

A passenger in the suspect’s vehicle, Lois Gulchard, was arrested on an outstanding warrant for destruction of property, but, as of this writing, no charges have been filed in connection with the shooting and the matter remains under investigation.
