• Armed men rob snow shovelers in Lawrence


    LAWRENCE, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Lawrence police say masked men armed with guns robbed two people shoveling snow and then a liquor store on Wednesday night.

    The two men struck first at around 8 p.m. at 576 Haverhill St., according to an article in the Eagle-Tribune. One of the men fired his gun into the air. Police recovered two .45 caliber bullet casings at the scene.

    Just a half hour later at 678 Haverhill St., two men held up Hamel's Liquors. Police believe the same pair were responsible for the earlier robberies.

    Methuen police also think the men could be responsible for a nearby gas station robbery that took place Sunday night.

    A preliminary description of the men suspected of committing the robberies lists one as stocky and 6-feet 1-inch tall, and the other as thin, around 5-feet 3-inches tall.
