A Brockton man is now fighting for his life after a Tuesday evening shooting incident. According to local authorities, the violence erupted just after 6:15 p.m. on Lexington Street, where the victim, an adult male whose identity has not been released, was found with gunshot wounds, as reported by Boston 25 News.

Following the incident, the victim was quickly transported to a nearby hospital with injuries described as life-threatening, Boston 25 News reported. The Brockton Police Department is conducting a thorough investigation; however, details surrounding the perpetrator or perpetrators remain scarce, no arrests have been made, and descriptions have not been made public as of yet.

The area of 28 Lexington Street turned into a crime scene shortly after the shooting, with police cordoning off the scene and initiating standard investigative procedures. Brockton Police are urging anyone with information that could aid in their investigation to come forward and contact the Brockton Police Detective Bureau at 508-941-0200.

Details regarding the motive and circumstances of the shooting are still unclear at this point. "No arrests have been announced and police have not yet provided a description of the suspect or suspects," WCVB reported. The community is left on edge as the search for the assailant continues and police sift through the evidence in an attempt to piece together the events that led to this critical incident.

With the investigation still "active and ongoing," officials are keeping a tight lid on developments. They assure, however, that any breakthroughs or updates will be communicated to the public as they work swiftly to bring the responsible parties to justice and to unravel the cause of this violent outbreak in a normally quiet Brockton neighborhood.
