Local and state authorities continue to investigate the “unattended death” of a man at New World Van Lines on St. Mark’s Way in Auburn. About 11am on Monday, fire and police responded to a report of a man who had been shot in the chest. The man was transported to a local hospital where he later died.

Little information has been made public, including the circumstances of the shooting or the victim’s identity. The Worcester District Attorney’s Office is looking into the case, and at least on report referred to the shooting as accidental. 

Auburn authorities stressed that this was not an active shooter situation, and that the public was never in any danger.
