Cambridge Police Press Release On Fatality

PRESS RELEASE

On 11/30/16 Cambridge Police Department was dispatched to the 300 block of Cedar Street in reference to a possible burglary in progress. Upon the officer’s arrival on scene a male suspect was seen jumping out of a second story window. Officers gave commands for the suspect to stop and comply with police, however the suspect refused officer’s commands and fled on foot.  Officers gave chase after the suspect. The suspect continued running through the neighborhood and eventually onto the property of Generation III boat yard. During the foot pursuit the suspect was in possession of a handbag and was attempting to open it. The suspect then ran to the end of the pier and then jumped into the water. Officers attempted to help the suspect to safety but the suspect went under the water. Officers received assistance from a nearby waterman along with Rescue Fire Company and the Department of Natural Recourses in an attempt to rescue the suspect. Approximately thirty minutes later the suspect was recovered from the water and pronounced deceased by medical staff at the scene. Officers recovered the handbag that the suspect had in his possession and found a handgun inside.
The suspect is believed to be involved in other felony crimes including a robbery incident with a handgun that occurred last week. The evidence from that robbery preliminarily matches the handgun that the suspect discarded.
The identity of the deceased suspect is being withheld at this time until proper notification can be made.

Divine intervention. Somehow though the dishonest will try to blame the officers.

If only more criminals could receive this type of an end to their criminal careers, we law abiding citizens could enjoy a more peaceful existence.
