Police searching for 2 suspects in connection with deadly Everett shooting

EVERETT, MASS. (WHDH) - Police are searching for two suspects who were allegedly seen fleeing the scene of a deadly shooting in Everett on Tuesday night.

Officers responding to the area of Partridge Terrace and Chelsea Street around 9 p.m. found a man in his 20s suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, according to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.

The victim, whose name has not been released, was transported to Cambridge Health Alliance Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Ronny Oliveira, who lives nearby, said he heard the gunshots.

“I thought it was a firework. Then I heard some screaming. Then I saw the police car come, so that’s how I know something bad really happened,” he recalled.

The fact that the two suspects managed to flee before police arrived had residents on edge.

“I’m scared, you know,” Oliveira said. “I’ve never seen anything like this happen around the building. It’s a safe place.”

Officers could be seen searching the area overnight.

The shooting remains under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call Everett police at 617-389-2120.
