1 min read

CAMBRIDGE — Lennox Pierre-Louis, 22, from Boston, has pled guilty in connection with shootings that took place on March 11 and June 18 in Cambridge, and on December 27, 2021, in Somerville.

Judge James Budreau sentenced Pierre-Louis to 5-6 years in state prison for the June 18 shooting, 2 ½ years for the March 11 incident, and another 5-6 years for the December 27 incident.

The latter two sentences will run concurrently with his sentence for the June 2022 shooting.

On June 18, Cambridge Police were dispatched to the intersection of Hurley and Charles Streets after reports of multiple gunshots.

Officers at the scene collected nearly a dozen shell casings and noted that at least four vehicles and one building had been hit by bullets.

Pierre-Louis fled the scene but was later arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant after crashing his vehicle.

Surveillance footage helped detectives from the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office identify Pierre-Louis as the shooter.

Pierre-Louis was also connected to two other shootings during an investigation into several serious incidents involving gunfire in Cambridge and Somerville.

The first incident occurred on December 27, 2021, on Marshall Street in Somerville, where ballistic evidence was discovered in a playground early in the morning.

One shot struck a car as a man was leaving for work, passing through the passenger side and exiting through the driver’s side without hitting the driver.

The second shooting happened on March 11 on Windsor Street in Cambridge, where three shots were fired, striking a residence and another building.

Pierre-Louis pleaded guilty to multiple charges, including attempted assault and battery by discharge of a firearm, carrying a firearm without a license, and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling for both the Cambridge and Somerville incidents.

District Attorney Ryan expressed concern over the rise in gun violence, particularly among young people, and the threat it poses to community safety.

Ryan is advocating for legislation that would establish a specific charge for intentionally shooting at a dwelling and create a new felony offense for reckless discharge of a firearm that risks serious bodily injury.
