State and local police are searching for a 23-year-old man they say is responsible for a shooting in Lynn Wednesday morning.
The shooting occurred shortly after 11:30 a.m. in the area of Neptune and Commercial streets, after which the shooter fled on foot, state police said in a news release. It’s unclear if anyone was injured in the shooting, but police described it as “targeted.”
Lynn police identified the suspect as Anthony “Bucky” Gutierrez, 23, Wednesday evening in a news release. He is wanted for assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to commit murder and three firearms-related charges.
Investigators said Gutierrez was targeting someone inside a white Toyota Camry, NBC10 Boston reported. Police have not identified the intended victim.
Authorities set up a shelter near the scene of the shooting as they searched for the shooter late Wednesday morning. Lynn police lifted the shelter around 2 p.m., saying there was still a significant state and local police presence in the area.
“Lynn Police conducted an extensive search of the area with Mass State Police. The suspect has not been located. This appears to have been a targeted shooting, not random. We encourage residents to be vigilant and keep your doors locked,” the department wrote on Facebook.
Police are asking people living near Commercial and Neptune streets to check their security camera footage around 11:30 a.m. to see if they captured Gutierrez.
Anyone with information about the shooting, who sees Gutierrez or knows his whereabouts is asked to call police at 781-595-2000.
Earlier this month, two people died following a shooting in Lynn that injured five others.
