Gunshot heard late Thursday in The Port connected with ATM incident, police say
The glass door to an ATM was shattered before 11 p.m. Thursday at Main and Portland streets, in The Port neighborhood near Kendall Square – by a bullet, police said in a Friday email.
Police responded to the intersection for a report of a possible breaking and entering into a small space used by Bank of America for one of its automated tellers and discovered the damage was caused by a bullet, said Jeremy Warnick, director of communications and media relations for Cambridge police. Officers canvassing the area Friday found a shell casing and ballistic evidence.
There were no known injuries from the firing of the bullet, though witnesses said a group of men were reportedly in a Newtowne Court parking lot across from Portland Street at the time of the gunfire.
It’s at least the fourth gunshot incident in The Port since spring, including a May 2 incident at at Harvard and Portland streets; a July 2 incident at 110 Harvard St.; and one on Aug. 3 at Washington and Portland streets.
