Multiple shots were fired overnight in the area of Grove and Marshall Streets in Haverhill’s Mount Washington neighborhood, police tell WHAV.

Department spokesman Capt. Stephen J. Doherty Jr. said several concerned neighbors called 911 to report gunfire around midnight Wednesday. People were inside at the time shots were fired, Doherty said. He would not comment on a motive or say if the shooting was gang-related.

The Mount Washington neighborhood, including the area surrounding Swasey Field, is no stranger to police activity. In May 2018, 20-year-old Nike Colon was gunned down on Washington Street in a drive-by shooting allegedly orchestrated by Eddy Almonte. Two people survived gunshot wounds at Swasey Field in 2016, while no injuries were reported after shots were fired by rival gang members on nearby Temple Street.

The investigation into Wednesday’s shooting is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call Detective Brian Bailey at 978-373-1212. Confidential tips are accepted.
