Late this afternoon, the Department of Public Safety confirmed that multiple gunshots were fired in the area of Cedar Dell. The DPS had received an initial report at approximately 3 a.m., and responded immediately, but found no evidence of gunshots at that time and the reports were attributed to fireworks. A preliminary investigation at that time failed to confirm either fireworks or gunshots being discharged. No witnesses were available to provide further information.

Later this afternoon witnesses came forward with evidence indicating that gunshots were fired, causing damage to three motor vehicles at a Cedar Dell parking lot. There is no indication that anybody was injured. The case is under an active investigation and the campus is secure at this time.

Anyone who may have information concerning this crime or any suspicious behavior should contact DPS immediately at508-999-9191, use the silent witness line at 508.999.8477, or fill out the confidential form at http://www.umassd.edu/publicsafety/silentwitnesstipline/.
