CAMBRIDGE (CBS) – Police are investigating after a man was fatally shot in a busy Cambridge neighborhood described as normally “very safe.”
A man in his 20s was found suffering from a single gunshot wound Thursday around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Tremont and Hampshire Street.
The man, who has not been identified, was taken to an area hospital but did not survive.
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.
