    BARRE – Police are searching for a man who shot another man in the shoulder on Brooklyn Street Thursday evening.

    The injury to Seth Parry, 20, is not said to be life-threatening. An eyewitness told police that as he and Parry were walking by an apartment building at 59 Brooklyn Street, a man dressed all in black and wearing a mask yelled to Parry saying, “Hey, woman beater.”

    The two men then started grappling with each other, according to the witness, who said the gun then went off and the masked man fled on foot.

    The shooting happened around 5:30 p.m. and police were questioning five people outside the residence shortly after the incident. A police dog was brought out as police searched the scene for evidence.
