A short time ago an MSP trooper located a BMW in Byfield that had been stolen from a dealership earlier today. The same suspect in the theft is potentially responsible for a prior carjacking in Lowell. When officers approached the suspect in the vicinity of Prime Gas Station on Central Street in Byfield, a weapon or weapons were discharged.
The suspect has been transported to Anna Jacques Hospital. Initial reports indicate that no police officers were injured. The investigation into this incident is at a very early stage. We will release more information when we have it.
