CAMBRIDGE — Four people were injured by gunfire in an incident early Sunday, July 5, on Weaver Avenue in Cambridge.

According to Cambridge Police Department Public Information Officer Capt. Justin Todd, four people were shot, one critically, in an incident at about 4:30 a.m. in the 700 block of Weaver Avenue in Cambridge.

Three of the victims were in stable condition after two were shot in the arm, and one was shot in the leg. Another victim was shot in the torso, and was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury in critical but stable condition, where the victim was reportedly still in surgery on Sunday morning. Police are not releasing the identities of the victims at this time, but all are believed to be adults.

Police believe multiple weapons were used due to their discovery of different shell casings in the area, and police are looking for suspects. Todd said a large crowd of about 200 people were present in the area at the time of the incident.

During the rest of the night of Saturday, July 4, and the early morning of Sunday, July 5, CPD had many calls, but no serious incidents and no arrests, according to Todd.

Fireworks of many types were discharged throughout the city during the evening, and riders were seen on all terrain vehicles in more than one location, some with headlights on, and some with headlights off.
