A man was shot multiple times by Haverhill police early Friday morning while officers were investigating reports of an ongoing domestic violence incident, Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett’s office said.

The incident happened at 23 Thorndike St. around 4:59 a.m., prosecutors said.

No other details were released by authorities.

The man shot was first taken to Lawrence General Hospital, but was then transported to a hospital in Boston for further medical treatment, according to prosecutors.

He was still alive as of late Friday night authorities said.

No officers were injured in the incident, said David Procopio, a State Police spokesman.


The shooting remains under investigation by Blodgett’s office and State and Haverhill police.
