2 men shot in Andover duplex; injured called serious

ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — Police are investigating a shooting at an Andover duplex that sent two men to the hospital with what were 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 at a duplex on North Main Street and then driven to the hospital by a friend.

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.
