Post-shooting, Rockland police on the hunt for a gunman
ROCKLAND, Mass. -- A gunman entered a house and shot two people inside, according to Rockland police. Officers are looking for the truck spotted speeding away from the scene.
Rockland Police blocked off a home on Concord Street where investigators say a man showed up armed with a gun to "deal with an issue that occurred here."
One woman was seriously wounded, shot in the abdomen and needed immediate surgery.
A second male victim was also shot, and was dropped off at another hospital before police arrived.
Investigators say witnesses saw the suspect leave in a silver truck.
Local and state police are investigating the shooting and searching for the suspect.
“We’ve had some problems here before,” said Rockland Police Chief John Llewellyn. “We don’t believe this to be a random act at all.”
