18-Year-Old Boy Shot Inside Worcester Apartment

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

 

An 18-year-old boy was shot in the arm inside his Cambridge Street apartment building on Monday night.

The wound was superficial and the victim refused medical treatment at the scene.

The victim could not provide a physical description of the two suspects citing poor lighting out by the front door.

The Incident

On Monday, August 21, at approximately 8:48 p.m., Worcester Police responded to a Cambridge Street address for a report of a man that was shot. Several police units responded. Officers were told by dispatch that a man had answered his door after someone had knocked and he was then shot through the door.

Upon the officers arrival they met with an 18-year-old male victim. He was holding his arm and stated that he was just shot by an unknown person.

The victim said that he was in his home when he heard a knock at the door. The victim went out to the front porch to open the door. When the door was opened he saw one man that called out his name. The victim acknowledged the man but quickly became suspicious when he saw a second man tucked close to the apartment building. The victim immediately began to retreat back into his apartment when the second man fired a shot at the victim.

Once inside the apartment the victim realized that he was hit in the arm. A family member within the apartment called emergency services.

The victim refused to provide any further information to the officers.
