He is being charged with Assault with intent to murder while in possession of a firearm, Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery causing serious bodily injury, discharge of a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, and carrying a firearm without a license.

Police say the victim was transported to a local hospital and is being treated with non-life threatening injuries. State and local police cordoned off the area and investigated the shooting. Police say the victim was not cooperative and have doubts about his story, that a man randomly shot him while he was walking on Broadway.

Just blocks away, at almost the same time a man was stabbed on Broadway in Lawrence at a barber shop. Sources say two barbers began to argue before one stabbed the other.

The stabbing victim was also transported to a local hospital and is being treated for serious injuries. Lawrence Police did not say if they have the stabber in custody.

    As of you Mr. Duggan, you should not be making profits by reporting stories from the ghettos, you have been juicing the ghettoes for quite sometime now and all you do is report the bad things that happen in our city. you should do more research and actually report on the ROOT CAUSES of the violence surrounding our cities and report on remedies that can actually help out our communities as of criticizing like you do. You probably have NEVER lived in our neighborhoods so why should you report on these things when you are not from here and cannot relate to US since you most likely live in the suburbs and was born with a silver spoon. If you dont know the struggle how can you see the trouble? Do something that is gonna really CHANGE our communities as of just reporting b.s that just keeps bringing that bad negative energy back here.

      If it wasn’t for Tom Dugan most of us would not even know the violence in LAWRENCE. He informs us of the bad things and shows us just how careful we have to be. I for one want to know the bad things in LAWRENCE and not have it hidden. I thank Tom Dugan who gives us the true news of the city. I grew up here and have seen all the changes and it’s really sad. Some of us are not Ghetto people. When you have grown up here your whole life I appreciate being informed of everything that goes to n in Lawrence, and just because I live in Lawrence does not mean I’m a Ghetto person !!!!!

    Mount Vernon does not count as living in Lawrence lol. If you supposedly have lived in lawrence “for 40 years as you claim” what have you done for Lawrence besides writing stories on newspapers? I aim at you because of the platform that you have, that you can be a voice for the people. You are mistaken my friend, I am NOT whats wrong with Lawrence, I try to read a lot , I try not to speak out of my rear end. You dont even defend yourself call me “ignorant” as of trying to humbly educate me you jerk AND START the change there. Why look at the other crap that you put up about our city that you claim that you are from? Give me a job and i will get you real uplifting stories that really matter, that can and will bring real change to our communities! SHEEP!!

      Actually you ARE what’s wrong with Lawrence. #1 I never lived in Mount Vernon I grew up on Boxford Street. #2 why would I hire someone who ignores the positive things I write about Lawrence (2/3 of the stores I write) … I already have someone who writes STRICTLY positive things about Lawrence his name is Tomas Michel. And if you bothered to read my paper you’d already know that.
      LASTLY: As soon as people in Lawrence deal with their inferiority complex and stop blaming the messenger and actually DO Something to make Lawrence better …..then AND ONLY THEN will Lawrence change. Sadly, the only thing people like you can do is bitch about anyone who points out the reality on the ground. What are YOU doing to make Lawrence better?

      So I will leave you with this…. there are DOERS and there are Cry babies who complain abut the doers. Which one are you?
