Gunfire Erupts After an Argument / No One Injured

On Monday, January 11, 2016 at approximately 7:00 pm, WPD officers responded to the report of gunshots fired at #88 Martin Street. The caller reported the shots were fired at an adult male resident just outside the residence. There were no reported injuries at the scene.

Initial investigation of the incident shows an adult male was shot at twice with a small caliber handgun by another male during an argument. The two shots missed the male, who retreated into the house as the suspect fled the scene in a vehicle.

The involved parties in this matter will not be named at this time, as investigation of the incident by the Wareham Police Department Detective Division continues. Investigation shows the incident is not a random shooting, as the suspect purposely came to the specific Martin Street residence to speak with parties there.

An update to this press release will be sent when information becomes available.
