Saugus Police Investigating Main Street Shooting
SAUGUS — Chief Ronald Giorgetti reports that the Saugus Police Department is investigating a shooting on Main Street earlier this evening.
At approximately 6:37 p.m., Saugus Police were dispatched to a report of shots fired in the area of 137 Main St. Officers responded immediately and, upon arrival, located shell casings in the roadway and secured the scene.
