1 man shot, another assaulted during confrontation in Revere

The incident remains under investigation, according to authorities.

Two people were hospitalized Tuesday night following a confrontation in Revere during which one man was shot and another was physically assaulted, according to authorities.

The Suffolk District Attorney’s office said state police responded to a home on Oxford Street Tuesday for a report of a person shot.

“There was some sort of a disturbance between family members,” Revere Police Chief James Guido told reporters at the scene, according to CBS Boston. “Some other parties arrived, it led to one person with a gunshot wound and another person being assaulted. We believe the parties are all known to each other.”


The police chief said the person who had been shot ran down the street and stopped a car, trying to get a ride to the hospital. According to CBS Boston, two cars with shattered windows were towed from the scene and Revere police responded to the Oxford Street residence around 10 p.m.

A neighbor, Danny Bochetti, told The Boston Globe he heard a noise and looked out his window to see what was happening on the typically quiet street.  

“It sounded like firecrackers, quite a few,” he said.

According to the DA’s office, the 32-year-old man who was shot was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, as was a 52-year-old man who was “injured in a physical confrontation.”

“Both are expected to survive,” the DA’s office said.

No arrests have been made in connection with the incident, which remains under investigation by Revere police.
