BOSTON (CBS) – Police have not yet announced any arrests after six people were shot, one fatally, during what appears to have been the filming of a music video in Lynn.
Six people were shot in the area of Quincy Terrace in Lynn while making a music video, and the Essex District Attorney’s office confirmed late Saturday night that one victim is dead. Police are calling this an “active” investigation.
All of the victims are 24-30 years old. At least one person has life-threatening injuries, investigators said.
“They were shooting a music video, I guess, and then somebody shot,” said Travis Lorini, who lives steps from where the shooting happened. “It was just regular guys, music video, singing, dancing, didn’t look too crazy.”
Lorini says he had just left his house to walk to the store when the shots rang out.
“I had just made like halfway down the street, and I hear what sounded like fireworks. But like really fast in succession, for like three seconds, and then I see like three to four people running onto Washington Street saying they were shot,” said Lorini.
Cellphone video from the night of the shooting shows a man lying on Washington Street, where George Manuel lives.
“Yeah, it was scary,” said Manuel. “I saw two victims, one lying in the street, one inside my lobby door.”
Police have not yet identified the person killed. Anyone with information is asked to call Lynn police.
