4 hurt after shooting at block party in Cambridge
CAMBRIDGE, Md. – “Evidently, there was some type of block party that occurred that evening at which time some type of confrontation occurred where gunshots rang out,” said Captain Justin Todd at the Cambridge Police Department.
At around 4 in the morning on Sunday, Cambridge police say shots rang out on Weaver Avenue.
The four people that were hit are now in stable condition.
But police say even though there were between 200 and 300 people in the area at the time of the shooting information is limited and so far they have no suspects.
“Right now we don’t have any witnesses that are able to tell us exactly who fired the weapons, why they were those individuals that were shot, why they were targeted, if they were targeted or if it was unfortunate circumstances,” said Todd.
47ABC tried to speak to neighbors about the shooting, but many refused to go on camera for fear of their own safety. However, some told 47ABC off-camera that they did see people carrying guns and that the party was out of control.
On Monday morning, evidence of that party such as cups and bottles remained at the scene, but police say they have some evidence of their own that they believe will help them find the shooter or shooters.
“We have recovered casings from the scene, which are from at least two different weapons that we know of, and also we’re reviewing different evidence throughout the area, which includes surveillance video,” said Todd.
Police tell 47ABC even though they have not identified a suspect yet they do not believe there is a threat to the general public and they say they are just grateful no one got killed.
“When you have that many people in one area and have a situation occur like that we’re thankful that everybody is still alive,” said Todd.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cambridge Police Department at 410-228-3333.
