1 Dead, 3 Injured In Shooting At Weymouth Apartment

WEYMOUTH (CBS) – Police are asking witnesses to come forward after one person was killed and two others shot at a Weymouth townhouse complex. It happened just before 3 a.m. along Patriot Parkway.

One person suffered fatal gunshot wounds. He was later identified as 30-year-old Eric Small of Cambridge. Two others were shot, and one person was hurt at the scene.

Weymouth Police said the incident may have stemmed from an event inside one of the apartments. Small was found near one of the entrances to the building.

"It's horrible. No one wants to hear that. I feel sorry for anyone involved," complex resident Jamie Yetra said.

On Sunday investigators had the parking lot shut down for most of the day.

There have been no arrests made, but police said there is no threat to the public.

Residents who heard the commotion and gunfire early this morning say this is not the first incident they've had at this complex. Many are deeply disturbed and fear for their safety.

"Selfishly as a resident I don't feel safe. I am hoping I can get out of here soon. There's been issues in the past with drag racing here," Yetra said.

Several people likely left the area as the shooting unfolded, investigators said. Anyone who was at the townhouse complex or witnessed the shooting is asked to contact police.
