CAMBRIDGE — Cambridge Police continue to investigate a series of four shootings over on Sunday, May 2, and Monday, May 3, that left a teen injured.

Police received a report of gunshots fired in the early evening of May 2 in the area of Pine Street and Cross Street, according to Cambridge Police Department spokesman Capt. Justin Todd. When officers arrived, they did not find any evidence or any witnesses to provide information.

A second incident took place at about 9:37 p.m., and police responded to a report of several shots fired in the area of Leonards Lane and Park Lane. Todd said officers arrived and found a 17-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to the left hip and pelvic area. The teen was taken to Tidal Health in Salisbury, where he is in stable condition after a bullet was removed, according to Todd. Evidence was located at the scene of the shooting.

Officers responded to a third incident at 1:33 a.m. on Monday, May 3, on the 700 block of Alex in response to another call about gunshots. Todd said officers found that two houses were struck by bullets, but no one was injured.

Police were called to a fourth shooting at about 10:19 a.m. where gunfire was exchanged in the area of Leonards Lane and Cosby Avenue. Todd said officers learned that shots came from a vehicle that pulled into a rear lot on Cosby Avenue and also from subjects that were on foot. Gunfire was exchanged, but no injuries were reported, Todd said.

Detectives from CPD are actively working each of these shootings and do have suspects, he added.
