DA investigating after 33-year-old woman shot at Malden apartment complex

MALDEN, Mass. — The Middlesex County District Attorney is investigating after a woman was shot at a Malden apartment complex.

According to the DA, the shooting occurred around 2:22 a.m. in an apartment complex on Overlook Ridge Drive in Malden.

Upon arrival, police located a 33-year-old female suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. She was transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries.

According to the DA, “the parties were inside the lobby of the apartment complex when multiple parties fired guns.”

“You can tell there’s something major going on with you guys here, the police, the whole units, state troopers when you first enter in the complex,” said Gina Rayes, who lives at the apartment complex and saw the crime scene as she was returning from work early Sunday morning. “This is really not expected over here, it’s really quiet, everyone is peaceful, they walk their dogs. Everybody says hello to each other, they greet each other.”

Another man was later reported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The motive remains under investigation, however, it does preliminarily appear that one of the men was being targeted, according to the DA.

This investigation is active and being conducted by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, Massachusetts State Police Detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office, and Malden Police.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact Malden Police at 781-397-7171.
