One man suffered a gunshot wound to the leg after a fight broke out near Pleasant Street on Tuesday night.
The 21-year-old Waltham man who was shot is expected to live. The incident took place not far from the Bank of America ATM kiosk on Pleasant Street. Police continued to try to get to the bottom of what happened and could be seen looking for evidence on Wednesday. Police have not identified any suspects, yet, according to Watertown Police Lt. James O’Connor.
Watertown Police received a 911 call at about 11:30 p.m. reporting a group of men involved in a fight near Pleasant Street. Then, a second 911 call about a man who had been shot, Watertown Police Chief Michael Lawn said in an interview with WCVB Channel 5.
“While officers were trying to figure out what was going on down there we received a second 911 call from the taxi company in the back, where an individual had walked into the taxi company with a gunshot wound in his leg,” Lawn said.
The incident does not appear to be a random one, Lawn said.
“These individuals, we believe, were all in a vehicle together,” Lawn said. “Some type of fight broke out within the vehicle, that dispersed into the street.”
According to WCVB, the man who was shot has not been cooperating with the Police investigation, but police said later that he and others have given more details.
