Police Investigation Continues Into Acre Shooting; Victim Out of Hospital

Haverhill Police continue to interview witnesses to Thursday morning’s Acre shooting, but have not yet identified a suspect.

The man who was shot, however, is out of the hospital and in “good condition.” When he was taken to the hospital following the little past midnight shooting, he had been found with “multiple gunshot wounds” that were not deemed life-threatening, police said.

Police have not identified the man who was shot near 21 Pentucket St. As the investigation unfolds, police have also declined to publicly speculate on any motives.

It was the second shooting in about a month within the neighborhood.

WHAV was the only news outlet to report July 1 that two men were shot outside 37 Cedar Street near Fourth Avenue. A 31-year-old Haverhill man was sent to a Boston hospital with serious injuries. The other, a 29-year-old Haverhill man was grazed by the bullet, treated at the scene and released.

Haverhill Police are asking the public for any information that may help during the investigation of the latest shooting. Anonymous tips may be left by calling the police station at 978-373-1212.
