2 people injured in Cambridge shooting

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WHDH) – Two people were shot in Cambridge just steps from Central Square. The gunfire rang out around 10:45 a.m. on Tuesday.

According to the Cambridge Police Department’s Twitter account, gunshots were reported on Auburn Street near River Street.

One person was reportedly wounded in the hand while another victim had a knee injury.

When police arrived, they only found the man suffering from a gunshot wound to his hand.

“A short time later, we received information that another gunshot victim was dropped off up at Cambridge Hospital,” said Cambridge Police Deputy Jack Albert.

Police ordered the nearby Amigos School, a school that rangers from pre-k to eighth grade, to shelter in place.

Police say they red car and a man on a white bicycle were seen leaving the scene after the shooting. They managed to track down the car, but it still doesn’t answer the question of “why?”
