Officers responded around 5:30 p.m. Friday to a neighborhood near the Eastgate Plaza Shopping Center and found the victim bleeding profusely from his leg.
He was taken to Lowell General Hospital before being airlifted to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Police haven’t released the man’s identity.
