No arrests have been made, but a dark colored sedan was seen fleeing the area.

“This is a very safe neighborhood. It’s very busy, there are a lot of people walking through the neighborhood. A lot of motor vehicle traffic. So this a rarity for this neighborhood,” Cambridge Police Superintendent Jack Albert said.

Andrew Godlewski said the shooting was surprising for residents in the neighborhood.

“It’s sad. I can’t believe it. You don’t expect it around here. Definitely not anything that we’ve seen,” said Godlewski.

Anyone with information is asked to call Cambridge Police.
