A 25-year-old man was killed, and two other men seriously injured, in a shooting early Saturday morning in Lynn, officials said.

Romel Danis of Lynn was pronounced dead at the scene on Lawton Avenue, not far from downtown. Two other men, who were not identified, were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds. One of the victims appeared to have life-threatening injuries, according to the Essex district attorney’s office.

Lynn police had responded to a report of loud music at a party, “when they heard shots fired from around the corner,’’ said Carrie Kimball Monahan, a spokeswoman for the DA’s office.
