The victim’s age and gender were not immediately available.

The injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, Kenneally said.

At the scene tonight, the residential street was sealed off with tape while police investigated.

Police and detectives were also investigating a couple of blocks away just off Geneva Avenue. Kenneally said there was a call for shots fired in the area of 393 Geneva Ave., but he could not say whether the incidents were related.

Police at both scenes declined to comment.
