FITCHBURG (CBS) – Heavily armed state and local police swarmed an apartment complex in Fitchburg Wednesday after a man was found seriously wounded in a shooting.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030′s Lana Jones reports.


Officers were called into Meadowbrook Village on Crestview Lane after gunshots were heard around 7:40 a.m.

WBZ-TV’s Alana Gomez reports

Antonio Klapakis, 27, was found lying in the street bleeding.  He was rushed to a hospital in Worcester, where he then went into surgery. He’s listed in stable condition.

Police would not confirm if the victim lived in the complex, but did say he is from Brooklyn, New York.

Roads surrounding the complex were blocked off for more than four hours as police searched for the gunman.

They thought the shooter may have been holed up in an apartment, but when the State Police STOP Team went inside the gunman was not there.

Police cleared the scene just before 12:30 p.m. but they continue to search for the suspect, whose name has not been released.
