Police: 1 killed, 2 injured in early morning Lynn shooting

LYNN, MASS. (WHDH) - A 25-year-old man was killed and two others injured in an early morning shooting in Lynn Saturday, police say.

Lynn police officers were responding to complaints of a loud party around 2 a.m. when they heard the sound of gunshots on Lawton Avenue, according to a statement issued by Essex District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett’s Office.

Romel Danis, of Lynn, was pronounced dead from injuries sustained in the shooting. Two other men, whose names have not been released, were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, where one of them was listed in critical condition.

Nearby surveillance cameras caught the incident on video.

A group of men were seen walking down the street, presumably leaving the party, when surveillance video shows them approach a vehicle and then take off running after shots are fired.

The shooting remains under investigation.
