Cambridge Police Investigating Overnight Shootings in The Port

The Cambridge Police are actively investigating two separate overnight shootings that occurred in The Port neighborhood. Two people suffered non-life threatening injuries due to these incidents.

Earlier this morning at approximately 4:30 a.m., nearby Officers responded to a ShotSpotter activation near the intersection of Broadway and Windsor Street. A 16-year-old Cambridge male was shot in the lower body and was being treated at a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries. A suspect in a vehicle reportedly pulled up to the victim and shot him before fleeing the area. Three shell casings were recovered and two vehicles were damaged due to the gunshots.

Last night at approximately 11:18 p.m., Officers patrolling the area responded to sounds of gunshots and a ShotSpotter activation in the area of 151 Washington Street. A victim (22-year-old Everett male) was located and treated by Officers on-scene after he was shot in the leg. He was then transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. At least eight shell casings were recovered and two vehicles parked in a nearby lot were damaged as a result of the shooting.

There have been no arrests made at this time. Officers have recovered and will be processing evidence from both incidents. Additionally, they will continue to follow-up with both victims, witnesses and anyone living and working in the area at the time of these shootings.
