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 injured when they were shot, one critically, in an incident at about 4:30 a.m. on 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 critical but stable condition.

Two of the victims were released, and two were still in the hospital in stable condition on Wednesday, July 7. Police did not release the identities of the victims, but all were believed to be adults.

Police believe multiple weapons were used due to the 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.

Todd said the victims told police they were at a party and preparing to leave when they were shot.

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.
