Two men shot after party in Randolph

Two men were shot in Randolph early Monday as a party was apparently winding down, police said.

The men, 18 and 22, were taken to local hospitals with gunshot wounds and were expected to survive, according to Randolph Police Chief William Pace.


The 18-year-old was shot in the chest and taken to Boston Medical Center and the 22-year-old was shot in the leg and taken to Brockton Hospital, Pace said.

Randolph police responded to 258 Liberty St. to break up a party at 11:30 p.m. Sunday, Pace said. At 12:06 a.m. Monday, police returned to respond to the shootings.

Pace said about four or five people returned to the house after the party, which is when the shots were fired inside.

“It doesn’t appear there was an argument,” said Pace.

It was unclear why the shots were fired, he said.


No one has been charged in the shooting as yet, but Pace said police “expect some resolution shortly.”

The shootings are under investigation.
