SALEM — A young man was being flown to a Boston hospital with a gunshot wound after a shooting on Palmer Street near Mary Jane Lee Park in the city's Point neighborhood Saturday afternoon.

The 18-year-old was conscious at the scene, police said.

Detectives and patrol officers were at the scene.

While no one was in custody, police said they do not believe that there is a risk to the public at this point.

It's the second shooting in as many weeks in Salem. Last Saturday an 18-year-old Everett woman was shot on Chase Street, receiving non-life-threatening injuries.
