Public’s Assistance Sought on Third Anniversary of Cambridge Homicide

CAMBRIDGE – Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Cambridge Police Commissioner Christine Elow are requesting assistance from the public on the third anniversary of the fatal shooting of Xavier Louis-Jacques, 19, of Cambridge.

On March 27, 2021, a male and female who were driving in the area of Pemberton Street saw Xavier Louis-Jacques seemingly unresponsive and called 911. Cambridge Police and other first responders arrived and located the victim suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. He was treated on scene and then transported to Mount Auburn Hospital where he later died.
Xavier Louis-Jacques was found in the area of the Rindge baseball field and the basketball courts located on Pemberton Street next to his vehicle, a white Lexus sedan. He was under a streetlight that was on at the time. The vehicle was locked, and Louis-Jacques still had his phone and keys with him.
