Two suspects were shot by Lynn Police after one of them opened fire during a standoff with the police, reports the Essex District Attorney's office. According to Lynn Police, they responded to a Wayne Street house after a call about an armed home invasion around 6:35 p.m. When the police arrived they found three men who had barricaded themselves inside the home.

During the standoff, one of the men, Randall McClain, 29, of Lynn, was shot in the arm after he shot at police from a second floor window. The district attorney reported that McClain then surrendered and was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for surgery.

The second suspect, Sokhannara Chea, 22, of Lynn, brandished a semi-automatic weapon from the home's front porch as police negotiators asked him to surrender. Around 11:30, Chea fired on officers who returned fire. Chea was then taken to Salem Hospital for surgery and was listed in critical but stable condition. The third suspect, Butchay Chourb, 22, of Lynn, who was not injured, pleaded not guilty to armed home invasion and was being held on $100,000 cash bail.
