Man Shot Near Lowell Train Terminal Tried To Drive Away

LOWELL (CBS/AP) -- A man has died after he was shot and crashed his car near the YMCA in Lowell Thursday afternoon.

The Middlesex District Attorney's Office and Lowell police say the shooting happened Thursday afternoon shortly before 12:45 p.m. close to the Lowell train terminal.

The man who was shot then got in his car and drove toward the YMCA near Thorndike Street.

They identified the victim only as an adult male and didn't provide details about the circumstances of the shooting as the investigation is ongoing.

"Airbags went off, the door swung open, and he was in a daze almost like somebody had punched him, almost like a concussion sort of thing, and then he just fell to the ground," described a man who lives near the scene.

A passenger jumped out and attempted to perform CPR on the fallen driver.

The man was transported to Lowell General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
