MALDEN, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a 39-year-old Saugus man has died after being shot at a skateboard shop in Malden.
The Middlesex District Attorney’s office identified the victim as Shawn Clark. Neighbors said Clark was the owner of Patriot Skateboards on Main Street, where the shooting took place.
Police responding to a call of shots fired at around 12:45 p.m. found Clark with gunshot wounds. He was taken to Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Malden police and state police attached to the district attorney’s office are investigating the circumstances.
Ashish Patel, manager of a nearby convenience store, tells The Boston Globe he saw two men running down a side street as he was driving up Main Street, then saw Clark lying on the ground.
