RANDOLPH — Chief Anthony Marag reports that the Randolph Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred Wednesday afternoon.
Just after 12 p.m. Wednesday, Randolph Police responded to 14 Condlin Drive for a report of a shooting.
Upon arrival, police located the victim, a 20-year-old Randolph man, who had been shot. He was transported by ambulance to an area hospital where he is being treated for his injuries.
A preliminary investigation indicates that the victim exited the restaurant and was shot by the suspect in the parking lot outside of the restaurant. The male suspect fled the area on foot. There were no other injuries.
Randolph Police, with the assistance of a Braintree Police K-9 and Weymouth Police K-9, searched the area throughout the afternoon, but did not locate a suspect.
The restaurant is located approximately a half-mile from Randolph High School. The school was briefly placed on lockdown out of an abundance of caution.
Officers continue to search the area for the suspect, and residents in the area may notice a law enforcement presence this evening.
Police believe that this was an isolated incident and not a random act of violence.
The incident remains under active investigation and no additional information is available at this time. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Randolph Police Department at 781-963-1212.
