WPD Detectives Investigate May St Shooting

For Immediate Release: 8/8/2020 11:05 am

On August 7th, 2020 at about 9:45 PM, a Worcester Police officer was on patrol in the area of May and Mason St when he was flagged down by a group of about ten people. Several people ran toward the officer’s cruiser and told him that a female had been shot. The officer called for backup and attempted to make his way to the female, but was initially blocked by several hostile members of the crowd. The officer located the thirty-eight-year-old female gunshot victim and provided her with medical aid. Paramedics arrived and transported her to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

This investigation is ongoing. If you have information about this incident, please send an anonymous text to 274637 TIPWPD + your message or send an anonymous web based message at worcesterma.gov/police. Calls can also be made to the Worcester Police Detective Bureau at (508) 799-8651.
