    [NECN] Authorities Respond to Officer-Involved Shooting in Auburn, Mass.

    Massachusetts State Police responded to a report of a local officer-involved shooting in Auburn Wednesday afternoon.

    (Published Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018)

    The incident was recorded by witness Dean Ghanoum on his cell phone. Ghanoum said police unloaded several shots at a man inside a red pickup truck.

    "All I heard was the cop yelling, 'drop your gun, drop your gun,'" Ghanoum recalled.

    After the first wave of shots, officers could be heard yelling another order to the man before another shot was fired.

    The condition and identity of the man is not known.

    Police said they had been looking for the pickup truck in New Hampshire when an officer in Auburn spotted it in the parking lot.

    Authorities said the man showed a gun to an officer but it's still unclear how many officers were involved in firing their weapons.

    State police closed the ramp from Interstate 290 to Swanson Road for a time as they conducted their investigation.

    The site is not far from the Auburn Mall and Auburn High School.

    The incident remains under investigation.
