A 23-year-old Malden man was shot in the leg in Chelsea Friday afternoon, police said.
The man was taken to CHA Everett Hospital with a wound to his left ankle, Police Chief Brian Kyes posted on Twitter. He is expected to survive.
A black four-door sedan was seen fleeing the shooting near Clyde and Exeter streets, Chelsea police said in a statement. Kyes said on Twitter that the car was a “newer model Toyota — possibly [a] Camry.”
