On Wednesday evening, family members identified the victim as 26-year-old Rob Hinkley as they created a memorial outside of his home. They say he is a father to a 6-year-old girl and just moved to the home nine days ago to try to clean up and start a new life.

"He had a 6-year-old daughter, he had a wife. He was a good dude, he didn't deserve this. Not at all," said Hinkley's cousin who did not want to be named.

Authorities said two suspects were seen fleeing the area on Chelsea Street.

A witness said they heard loud noises and then saw EMTs working to revive a person, who was then loaded into an ambulance and taken to the hospital.

"I heard two bangs," said Molly Cahill, who lives opposite 10 Partridge Terrace. "I don't know if he got shot in the doorway, inside the house, I don't know. They brought somebody up the stairs and put him in the ambulance," she said.

Nearby surveillance video obtained by Boston 25 News shows the two men fleeing Partridge Terrace at 8:49 p.m. One person in dark clothing could be seen sprinting down Chelsea Street. Another emerged from a shadowy parking lot about ten minutes later.

Everett Police say they are actively searching for the two suspects and encouraged anyone with information to contact them. The DA's office said no arrests have been made.
