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.
