Lowell Police officers, who were investigating a report of domestic violence and assault and battery involving a woman and her son at their home, shot an armed man who was at the center of the conflict. Police officers arrived at the East Merrimack Street home in Lowell on Friday August 19th to discover the armed suspect at the scene, who they subsequently shot twice.

After the shooting, the man was flown by medical helicopter to a Boston Hospital for treatment. There is no report on his condition, but Lowell Police Captain Thomas Kennedy told reporters that because "the man was shot twice ... I imagine his injuries were quite serious."

According to Kennedy, the mother was not injured in the shooting but was brought to the hospital for observations. The identity of the armed man was not immediately known because public records did not have him listed as living in the house.
