Salem police investigating shots fired near I-93 exit
SALEM — Police are seeking information about an incident in which gunshots were fired in a residential neighborhood early Sunday morning.
Officers arrested a gun-toting suspect a short distance from the scene, but the gun the man had in his car was of a different caliber than the one used in the shooting.
The shots were fired at about 2:20 a.m. Sunday near the intersection of South Policy Street and Maclarnon Road.
A resident reported seeing a dark-colored sedan stopped in the road in the area and said that one of the two men in the car fired several rounds toward the Exit 1 off-ramp from Interstate 93. The ramp crosses South Policy Street.
Shortly after receiving the call, police stopped a car matching the one described and found a loaded handgun in the car.
They arrested the owner for carrying a firearm without a license. However, police said the gun in the vehicle was not the one that was fired on South Policy Street.
The suspect, Jonathan Mai, 19, of Lowell, Mass., was reported to be uncooperative during questioning, denying any involvement in the shooting.
Investigators did not find a link between the shooting and the car they stopped.
One passenger in the car, Bophann Peck, 19, of Lynn, Mass., was arrested for being a minor in possession of alcohol and another passenger was taken to the police station to await the arrival of family members.
Police have asked anyone with information about the incident to contact police at 893-1911.
Mai was released on $500 cash bail, Pech was given a summons.
Both will be in court Oct. 15 for arraignment.
