Joint Statement from the CPD and Cambridge Public Schools Involving Firearm Discharge Investigation

Joint Statement from the Cambridge Police Department and Cambridge Public Schools Involving Firearm Discharge Investigation

At approximately 1:45 this afternoon a Cambridge Police Department Youth Resource Officer assigned to Cambridge Rindge and Latin School accidentally discharged their firearm while using a staff bathroom inside the school. There were no injuries. The officer immediately notified department supervisors and the school administration. CPD then responded to the scene and are currently investigating.  The school day was not disrupted and there were no other injuries.

CPS and CPD value their longstanding partnership as the Youth Resource Officer program is a vital aspect of maintaining safe and welcoming learning environments within our school communities.
