Please see the following statement from Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas:
“Our condolences go out to the families of the victims. They have shown remarkable strength and courage and we are in close contact with them as we focus on bringing the perpetrators to justice.
At this point in the investigation, every indication is that this was not a random act. However, it appears the victims happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
In order to maintain the integrity of this investigation, any additional information will be released by the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office as they are the lead agency investigating the incident.
With that said, we recognize that this is an extremely difficult and emotional time and many people have questions. I want to assure residents that if we receive any indication that the safety of the neighborhood is in jeopardy, we will not hesitate to share that information with the community.
We’re also asking for the public’s help in solving this crime, and anyone with information is asked to call the Cambridge Police Department at 617-349-3300 or visit www.CambridgePolice.org/Tips to find out how to submit tips anonymously.”
