Lowell Police responded to an East Merrimack St address this afternoon for a reported domestic disturbance, and were confronted by a man in his 50′s who had reportedly been threatening his mother. The man then allegedly ran towards officers with a knife in his hands, and was shot by police. He was transported to Lowell General Hospital while a DHART medical helicopter was requested. DHART 2 responded and transported the man to the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. Medics reported that the man was shot three times, once each in the thigh, abdomen, and buttocks.
No police officers were reported to be injured.
