Police say bullets sprayed into six different cars in a spate of violence that left one man shot in the leg on Thursday.
The incident took place Thursday night about 8:12 p.m., according to a police report released Monday. Police patrolling the area of Bromley-Heath heard what sounded like shots and hustled toward Parker Street.
Police said they saw a man running and stopped him. At the same time, they heard more shots and saw another man running. When police reached him at 166 Terrace St., they saw he was wounded. It was later learned he'd suffered a "non life-threatening" gunshot wound to his leg. The man was taken to Brigham & Women's Hospital for treatment, police said.
The incident disrupted the Jackson Square neighborhood, with police blocking off Heath Street from Columbus down to the rotary, according to Universal Hub.
Police confirm that six cars were struck by bullets. Police recovered a gun and ballistics evidence. No arrests had been made as of Monday.
Things have been quieter at Bromley-Heath in recent months after a spring and summer in which as many as six people were shot in what police believe to have been drug-related violence. The JP Gazette reports that police have increased patrols and the housing development upgraded security.
