DRACUT — A 20-year-old Lowell man was flown to a Boston-area hospital by MedFlight early Saturday morning after he suffered a stab wound during a fight outside a late-night restaurant on Lakeview Avenue.
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 20-year-old Lowell man found in the parking lot suffered from a stab wound, according to Meghan Kelly, a spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office.
That man is expected to survive his injuries, according to Kelly.
G&G Quick Bite was closed in June 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 Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Kelly declined to comment on whether there are any suspects in the incident, or on whether it appears to be random or targeted.
The State Police Crime Scene Unit and State Police detectives attached to the district attorney’s office are assisting Dracut police on the investigation.
Anyone with information on the incident or anyone who may have witnessed it are asked to call Dracut detectives at 978-957-2123.
