Details are still scant on what might have instigated the shooting at a Washington Street apartment Thursday night.
Peabody Police spokesman Michael Crane released an official statement late Friday morning, saying the incident is still under investigation by local police and state police detectives assigned to the district attorney's office.
Crane said no arrests have been made and confirmed that police believe the shooting was not a random act of violence.
Crane said officers arrived at Apt. #3 of 197 Washington St. at approximately 8:55 p.m. Thursday to investigate a report of gunshots. The apartment is above D'Orsi's Bakery & Delicatessen.
One male victim, who was suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to his thigh, was treated at the scene and taken to Mass. General Hospital by ambulance.
Crane confirmed that the injury did not appear to be life-threatening.
Police said Thursday night they were searching for another male to bring in for questioning on the incident, but no mention was made of that person in Friday's statement.
