A similar incident came March 31, when gunshots were reported at approximately 4:06 a.m. at School and Cherry streets – again, only about a block away – and police found shell casings but no victims.

Before that, the most recent such similar incident was at 5:48 a.m. Dec. 11, another block away at Norfolk and Worcester streets – with shell casings again found, but no victims.

    Fourth report of gunshots in three months basically replays an incident a week earlier
    Police are investigating an apparent firing of a weapon at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday at Norfolk Street and Bishop Allen Drive in The Port neighborhood, where they went after an alert from ShotSpotter technology, which listens for gunshots in the city. A shell casing was found in municipal Parking Lot No.
