Cambridge Police Conducting Investigation Following Early Morning Shooting in Central Square

An early morning shooting is being investigated by the Cambridge Police Department. Emergency Communications initially received reports of gun shots in the area of Central Square around 1:31 a.m. Three shell casings were located by the Cambridge Police near 731 Massachusetts Avenue following a preliminary investigation. There is one known victim at this time after officers responded to nearby School Street, where a 34-year-old Cambridge male was located.
