A teenager was shot Thursday afternoon inside a CVS in Stoughton, Massachusetts, and three suspects are on the loose.
Police confirm an 18-year-old male was shot in the shoulder. He was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton.
"It is brazen, it is brazen," Donna McNamara, Stoughton's interim police chief, said Thursday evening.
According to investigators, three people went into the store, and an altercation ensued. The store closed while police were processing the crime scene.
The shooting occurred near the store's front checkout counter.
"We have people we are interviewing at this time," McNamara said. "We have not identified anyone yet."
She added the preliminary investigation indicates this shooting was not random.
"Certainly, this bothers me," she said. "It was not a random act."
The incident caused Stoughton Public Schools to cancel all after-school programs Thursday at Stoughton High School and O'Donnell Middle School.
"I almost came here to pick up my migraine medicine, that's just crazy," Lisa Prisincano said. "I just feel terrible, imagine if I was here with my son and everything."
A Massachusetts State Police K-9 was helping in the search for suspects.
