FITCHBURG -- A 42-year-old who was shot in the chest following an argument early Friday morning on Lawrence Street is expected to live, according to Deputy Police Chief Philip Kearns.
Police responded to a call around 2 a.m. of a man down on the sidewalk in front of 112 Lawrence St.
When police arrived, they found the 42-year-old victim conscious with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was taken to HealthAlliance Hospital in Leominster and then moved to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
Police have not released his name.
Several witnesses interviewed by police said an argument preceded the shooting, according to Kearns. As of 11:30 a.m. Friday, police had not interviewed the victim.
A police log mentioned several vehicles police believe could have been used by the shooter to flee the crime scene, including a silver SUV, a black Ford Mustang and a black Hyundai Tiburon.

Hey, isn't this that Kearns cop that our wanna-be Mayor was on here harassing and calling a crook back in 2009? He even went so far as insinuating that this cop was working under the Chiefs desk. Just wondering, could this be considered a hate crime and a violation of someone's civil rights?
Imagine, this guys is now running for Councilor at large, can anyone picture him having too deal with Demoura, Kearns and all these other people he's been on here trashing over the years?
Kearns the crook-
"Tasca stated that Kearns was in on the "matchbook/taco bell wrapper accounting scandal!" By the way Kearns is as ignorant as they come as he has the "sense of entitlement" feelings."
"Not behind the desk;UNDER Demouras desk"
"Chief Kearns, I mean Captain kearns, I mean Lt. Kearns. YOU ARE FIRED!!!!!!!!!!"
"Kearns allowed criminal behavior amoung the brass. He knowingly allowed this embezlement.
He should be charged. There needs to be an example made that states "Nobody is above the law."
kevin from fitchburg
"We need a federal investigation so they can uncover this illegal operation and make them repay this money.Kearns must of had a great christmas this year. I bet he was laughing all the way to the bank!!This is an outrage!!Call your senator Flanagan and report this happening to the FBI web site along with the attorney generals office.
"Tasca is singing; on the chopping block are:Kaddy
A few others"

You are quite right, of course, but I wouldn't worry too much. The bookies are saying that he'll get 42 votes.
#5 Jul 19, 2013
He has 4 days to turn in his papers with all the needed signatures to get on the ballot. We'll find out on the 24th who is actually running.

Stamos, you have issues. So, you just pile on anything that someone states about this Kearns?
Someone stated that he pointed a loaded gun at another officers head; I didn't state this and I know absolutely nothing about that incident.
Kearns mistreated my mother. He did stonewall an investigation but that is because their is absolutely NO IA.
Other than that I have no complaints of Kearns. Someone on here stated that he spit on and kicked a handcuffed man in a police wagon that was arrested for looking over from a corner at a bust that they were doing and came up empty.
These are things that others have brought up. I believe one was an actual lawsuit.
But let me ask, what does Kearns as police spokesman in this shooting have anything to do with me? Really?
You are attempting to stir up kearns? So, you are the official shit starter?

This man may have come out to complain of the noise? Wow, you can be cruel!

EX-FITCHBURG MAYORAL CANDIDATE GETS PROBATION IN ASSAULT
Sentinel and Enterprise
03/23/2012 06:32:08 AM EDT
FITCHBURG -- One-time mayoral candidate Kevin A. Lynch on Thursday agreed to comply with terms of a 2 1/2-year pretrial probation on charges that he attacked an off-duty police officer last year.
Lynch, 42, of 48 Cedar St.,#2, is ordered to not commit any misdemeanor or felony crimes, to abide by any existing harassment orders, and to not publicly comment in writing about the officer, or the officer's family, in relation to the case. Lynch is also barred from pursuing civil action related to the incident against the Fitchburg police, JR's Pub or any of their employees.
Last March, Lynch was arrested on charges that he attacked Officer Kerry Siomos outside the North Street pub after yelling at Siomos and threatening to kill the officer and his family.
The charges of assault and battery on a police officer, assault and battery, disorderly conduct and threatening to commit a crime will be dropped after 2 1/2 years if Lynch complies with all terms.

We know that part of your probation was to "abide by any existing harassment orders." We also know that there was a specific order about the police station itself. Which is understandable. Few citizens would want to go in and get an accident report or something with you outside chanting "You cops are all done! I'm going to get you all!" They would have driven up to Ashby instead.
But what of the orders about individual police officers? Was Kearns on that list? And how many were there again? You have said "several," But given your propensity for stretching the truth, in your mind several could also be dozens.
By the by, how are your nomination papers coming?
#10 Jul 20, 2013
He is still trying to find someone to fill out the paperwork for him.
#11 Jul 20, 2013
What is your problem? You are persistent. You are just transfixed on this probation thing, huh?
One more time just for you. There is NO probation as the case is OPEN! You need to look into these matters before you continue to harass me over them! Ask the court! There is NO probation, there has been and NEVER will be admittance to ANY of those BOGUS FACTS to being TRUE! ZERO!!!
What you are doing is harassment! There is NO barring from the police station, ZERO! All you are going to accomplish is for this case to be OPEN and thoroughly gone through which many do not want to happen.
I don't care if this case goes forward as quit frankly I am tired of your constant harassment concerning this incident. Maybe you are an enemy of these other people and you want it to go forward. Whatever the case may be for why you continue to CONSTANTLY harass me over this case I do not know but you are motivating me to bring it all back to be gone through.
What do you want from me? I AM NOT MOVING OUT OF FITCHBURG! Leave me alone! I will hold anyone and everyone accountable through the courts if I am harassed or harmed any further. ENOUGH!

MAYORAL HOPEFUL ARRESTED IN FIGHT
Assault on Police Sergeant Alleged
By Paula J. Owen TELEGRAM & GAZETTE STAFF
FITCHBURG — Mayoral candidate Kevin A. Lynch was being held until his dangerousness hearing in Fitchburg District Court today after he was arrested Saturday night for allegedly assaulting an off-duty Fitchburg police officer and a firefighter.
Mr. Lynch, 41, of 48 Cedar St., Unit 2, is charged with threatening to commit a crime — murder; assault and battery on a police officer; assault and battery on ambulance personnel; and disorderly conduct.
His friend, David L. Gonzalez, 41, of 53 Forest St., is charged with assault and battery on a police officer for trying to stop police from arresting Mr. Lynch, according to court records.
Sgt. Kerry C. Siomos alleges in his report that Mr. Lynch assaulted him about 8:45 p.m. at a car show outside of JR’s Pub on North Street, across the street from the fire station.
Sgt. Siomos said he walked outside to move his car about 20 minutes after he arrived at JR’s when Mr. Lynch and Mr. Gonzalez started yelling at him aggressively from the area of a car parked on North Street. He said he immediately recognized Mr. Lynch,“a man that has been stalking this officer for a long time who I consider very dangerous given my knowledge of his criminal past.”
Sgt. Siomos said Mr. Lynch continued screaming at him and said,“You cops are all done. I’m going to get all of you.”
The officer approached Mr. Lynch as he continued to yell and flail his arms, his report says, and then Mr. Lynch “got right in my face.” Sgt. Siomos said Mr. Lynch had a deranged look on his face and threatened to kill Sgt. Siomos and his family.
Sgt. Siomos said he told Mr. Lynch to stay on the ground, but when he got up and went after Sgt. Siomos again, Firefighter P.J. Roy, who had been on call as an emergency medical technician at the fire station, put his arms around him to restrain him. Mr. Lynch then began striking him with his elbows to get away, according to police reports.
Mr. Gonzalez tried to physically prevent Sgt. Siomos from arresting Mr. Lynch.
“I am very alarmed and it should be noted that both subjects have been recently observed outside watching my house, with my young daughter, elderly mother and fiancée at home,” Sgt. Siomos’ report said.
Mr. Lynch’s cellphone allegedly contained several close-up photos of Sgt. Siomos’ family car registration and was confiscated.
In February, after Mr. Lynch announced his bid for the Fitchburg mayor’s post, he told a reporter he had been convicted of “a few assault and battery on police officer cases over a span of 20 years” when he lived in Boston.

If I remember correctly, You were the one who mentioned in a previous post that there was a harassment order barring you from the police station. And a few cops. In your post , of course, you said that this was the work of the GOBN, but nonetheless, there are court orders barring you from the police station and a number of individual police officers. Or did someone "twist your words"?
#15 Jul 20, 2013
This person that was shot is not in a gang. He is a working man to provide for his daughter. You people can just go jump off a bridge.
#16 Jul 20, 2013
I had a feeling that it was a regular citizen. I hope he is doing OK. Our prayers are with him and his family.
Don't bother listening to these meatheads out here as they are just plain sick in the head. They are beyond ignorant!
I hope and pray for this mans' survival. Don't allow these people out here to bring out any negative energy, stay positive.
May God Bless you, your friend and your families!!!

...DeMoura said Lynch has been making a steady series of claims of being threatened for the four years since he's been with the Fitchburg Police Department, and the threats are not credible.
"There's only so many times you can cry wolf," said DeMoura. He said Lynch's frequent claims of being threatened have become a form of harassment against the police department.

My friend Rollstone. Turn the other cheek. Let go and let live! Release your evil and let it melt into the earth. Be clean from this evilness that you possess .
I am making a peace offering Rolly. No more cruelness from you against me.
I apologize for whatever it is that you hate me for, be happy! Do not hate your fellow human being. I am the peace maker.
I am asking for peace. I will not speak badly of anyone. We are all GODS children. Pray for me as I will pray for you.
