One man was found shot in an apartment in downtown Lowell Friday and another man was arrested, according to the city’s police department.

The victim was flown to a Boston hospital for treatment. His condition was not known Friday evening.

Officers responded around noon to a report of shots fired in the area of 200 Market St., police said in statement.

The address is for a large apartment building.
