Five people suffered minor injuries early this morning when a man opened fire outside a bar in Lynn, police said.
At 2 a.m., police received a report that a fight in Sori's Restaurant had spilled out onto Market Street. When officers arrived, they discovered that a man had brandished a gun and shot into the crowd.
Police said they found shell casings and damage to several storefronts.
The victims were taken to local hospitals, treated and released.
Officers arrested one member of the crowd who they say was involved in the fight. Police charged Gauthier Pequito, 24, of Lynn, with disorderly conduct, said Lieutenant Dave Brown, who provided no details about Pequito's role in the incident.
No one has been arrested in connection with the shooting, which remains under investigation, Brown said.
