Cambridge Police Investigating Gunshots at Massachusetts Avenue


The Cambridge Police are currently investigating several reports of gunshots that occurred early this morning in the area of 260-290 Massachusetts Avenue.

Cambridge Police responded to reports of gunshots at approximately 1:07 a.m. on 10/20/2014. There are currently no reported injuries or victims, but Cambridge Police did recover multiple spent shell casings at 266 Massachusetts Avenue and a nearby building was struck with gunshots. At this time, several reports indicated that at least four suspect vehicles were involved in the incident: a silver Audi A3 hatchback, a black Nissan Maxima, a black Ford Edge and a white Toyota Camry. A fifth vehicle (dark colored SUV) may also be involved.  Indications at this point in the investigation are that this incident was not random in nature.
