A gunman fired into a group of people on Harvard Street in Malden early in the morning on New Year's day, seriously injuring one man, police said.

About 2 a.m. Tuesday, a man wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, fired multiple rounds at three people as they walked down Harvard Street, Malden Lieutenant Marc Gatcomb said in an e-mail.

One man was struck and taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with serious injuries, but is expected to recover, Gatcomb said.

Gatcomb said he could not comment on the shooter's motive and that the incident remained under investigation.
