CARL RUSSO PHOTOS: An "unknown assailant" shot a 24-year-old man while he was 
walking on Broadway Tuesday evening, police said.
The victim was shot at several times and hit once, according to Detective 
Lt. Michael Pappalardo, who was at the scene investigating. The Fire 
Department transported the man to a local hospital for treatment of a 
non-life-threatening injury, Pappalardo said.
The shooting happened at Broadway and Center Street at around 7:25 p.m. 
Multiple 911 calls reported the incident to police.
Two hours after the shooting, the section of Broadway in front of the 
Sonrisa Market was blocked by crime scene tape. Part of Center Street was 
also closed as state and Methuen police officers investigated.
Police "recovered items of an evidentiary nature" at the scene, said 
Pappalardo, who didn't go into further details.
No arrests had been made as of Tuesday night. Anyone with information 
about the shooting is asked to call Methuen police at 978-983-8698.

Methuen detectives with the investigation.
