Police are searching for the gunman responsible for the fatal shooting of a 26-year-old man and injury of another man in his late 20s.

A 26-year-old man was killed and another man in his late 20s was injured Tuesday in a shooting near a Weymouth, Massachusetts apartment complex.
Police received a call about the shooting at approximately 9:30 p.m. on Rockway Avenue, officials said. Both victims were found near the entryway of the Weymouth Commons Apartments before they were rushed to South Shore Hospital.
The 26-year-old victim, identified as Nickey Gomes, was pronounced dead at the hospital. The other victim, whose identity has not been released, is expected to survive.
"Police have done a sweep of the area and it's generally believed that individual or those individuals have left the scene," Norfolk County District Attorney Michael Morrissey said.
Gomes is formally from Brockton but was apparently staying at the apartment complex. A source alleged that the man killed had been charged with attempted murder after a shooting outside a hotel in Sharon two years ago.
A vehicle at the scene was towed by police.
Officials are searching for the gunman and a possible motive. State police and ballistics experts are assisting with the ongoing investigation.
