3 Cambridge residents arrested in connection with Somerville shooting that left 4 wounded

Three people were arrested and three guns recovered in Cambridge following a shooting in Somerville Thursday night that left four people wounded, officials said.

Around 11:15 p.m., officers stopped a car, which Somerville police were looking for in connection with a shooting earlier in the night, on the corner of Davis Street and Broadway Street, Cambridge police said in a statement. The occupants of the car, three Cambridge residents, were arrested: Justin Ellcock, 24; Davel Matthews, 23; and Destiny Banks, 23.

Officers found a stolen high capacity gun on Ellcock, along with two other guns and ammunition inside the car, police said.


Ellock is facing charges of multiple counts of carrying a firearm, multiple counts of possession of a large capacity feeding device, and possession of ammunition, police said. Matthews and Banks are facing charges of carrying a firearm and possession of a large capacity feeding device.

All three people will be arraigned in Cambridge District Court at a later date, according to Cambridge police spokesman Jeremy Warnick.

Three women and a man were shot near River Road in Somerville around 10:30 p.m., according to Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone, who was on scene shortly before midnight.

One of the women was in critical condition Thursday night, he said. Curtatone was informed that all of the victims were in stable condition by Friday morning.

“It’s a reminder that violence is prevalent in our society, as well as guns. We still need to work hard to get to the root cause of the violence,” Curtatone said in a phone interview with the Globe.

The investigation of the shooting is ongoing, police said.

Cambridge police are also investigating a separate shooting that occurred on Harvard Street Thursday night, police said.

Around 9:42 p.m., officers responded to reports of gunshots near 110 Harvard St., Cambridge police said in a tweet. Shell casings were found at the scene.


No injuries were reported, police said in the tweet.
