LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) - Police say a woman has been killed and a man injured in a shooting outside of a Lawrence restaurant.

Police Chief James Fitzpatrick tells The Eagle-Tribune (https://bit.ly/2ptvgt7 ) the shooting at about 8 p.m. Sunday occurred in a parking lot across the street from La Cava Restaurant about a half hour after an altercation inside.

The woman was identified by the Essex district attorney’s office Monday as 40-year-old Arielis Valdez, of Lowell. The other victim’s name was not disclosed. He is expected to survive.

Police say a suspect was seen fleeing in a white sedan. There have been no arrests.

It was the second fatal shooting in the city in as many days. Authorities say 35-year-old Abdul Lopez, of Revere, was killed Saturday. No one has been arrested in that shooting either.
