2 men in 20s shot in Andover parking lot

ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — Police are investigating a shooting in Andover that sent two men to the hospital with what were at first described as serious injuries.

Chief Patrick Keefe says police were notified at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday that two men had arrived at Lawrence General Hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds.

Officers determined the victims had been shot in a shopping plaza parking lot, made their way to a nearby duplex, and then driven to the hospital by a friend.

The men were later released from the hospital.

Police do not think the shooting was a random act of violence and the victims may have been targeted. There is no danger to the public.


The victims were both in their 20s, but no names were released.

No arrests have been announced.
