A 20-year-old Lowell man was flown to a Boston-area hospital by MedFlight early Saturday, June 7, after he suffered a stab wound during a fight outside a late-night restaurant on Lakeview Avenue in Dracut.
The Middlesex District Attorney's Office said in a press release that Dracut police were called to G&G Quick Bite, 1086 Lakeview Ave., about 2:13 a.m., for what was initially thought to be a shooting. But when emergency crews arrived a short time later, they determined no shooting had occurred and that a man found in the parking lot was suffering from a stab wound, according to Meghan Kelly, a spokeswoman for the DA's office.
The man is expected to survive his injuries, according to Kelly.
G&G Quick Bite was closed last month after inspectors found several health-code violations. Dracut Health Agent David Ouellette said the restaurant reopened June 28 after the owner addressed all of his concerns.
"The owner completely redid the place," Ouellette said. "They were very friendly and everything in the place is new."
The restaurant is open until 4 a.m., on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Kelly declined to comment on whether there are any suspects in the incident, or on whether the attack appeared to be random or targeted.
The State Police Crime Scene Unit and State Police detectives attached to the District Attorney's Office were assisting Dracut police on the investigation.
