WEYMOUTH, Mass. — Police are investigating after one person was killed and two others were shot at the Mastlight apartment complex in South Weymouth on Sunday morning.
The Norfolk County District Attorney confirmed one person was killed, two others were shot and treated at the hospital and a fourth person was taken to the hospital for another medical reason.
The victim who died has been identified as Eric C. Small, 30, of Cambridge.
Officials said no one has been arrested, but there is no danger to the public as the shooting is not random.
Police were called around 3 a.m. to the Mastlight apartment complex at 10 Patriot Parkway in South Weymouth. The DA said police are investigating whether the shooting happened during an indoor event or party that spilled out into the parking lot.
Witness Tracy Sanborn told Boston 25 News that she woke up from the sound of 15 to 20 gunshots. She and her son ran to the window and saw people running from a townhome.
“There were just probably at least 30 people, they looked like young adults, early 20s running out of this townhouse, which is across from us, and jumping in cars,” Sanborn said. “And there was a guy standing there going ‘go go go,’ and there must’ve been a dozen cars that left speeding out of the parking lot.”
Sanborn said she saw a man lying on the ground of the parking lot who appeared to be unresponsive. She said police were giving him chest compressions.
Some residents had to be evacuated from at least one of the buildings.
Officers, police K9s and SWAT teams surrounded the apartment complex for hours Sunday morning. Massachusetts State Police assisted Weymouth Police at the scene. Officers from Braintree, Quincy and Rockland also responded.
The DA said police are investigating the shooting. The police chief is asking the people who left the apartment complex to come forward and speak to police with any information.
