BRIDGEWATER, Mass. - The Bridgewater Police Department is investigating a shooting that happened on Saturday evening after a man was seriously injured.
At approximately 6:23 p.m. yesterday, Bridgewater Police and Fire responded to multiple 911 calls at 246 Pleasant Street for reports of a person being shot.
A woman also came into the police department to report the shooting.
When they arrived at the scene, police found a 29-year-old Bridgewater man seriously injured after being shot twice, once in the forearm and another in the upper thigh area.
The victim was conscious and alert when police and firefighters arrived. He was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Preliminary investigation suggests that two men came into the house and the victim met them outside of the residence.
One of the two suspects then pulled out a firearm and shot the victim twice. Thus far, police do not believe this was a random act of violence.
The victim appears to have been familiar with the assailants and targeted by the two men.
The two suspects are described as a white male, 5'10" weighing 185 pounds and a black man, approximately 5'6" wearing a black sweatshirt.
Anyone with information regarding this ongoing investigation is asked to contact Bridgewater Police at 508-697-6118.
