Harvard and Cambridge Rocked by Shooting

harvardentranceAccording to the Associated Press, a man identified as Justin Cosby was shot in the stomach while standing in the stairway of a Harvard Dorm Monday afternoon .  He died yesterday morning at Beth Israel.

The details of this incident are still being investigated.  Mr. Cosby was not a student at Harvard which was even more confusing.  He had many connections to the Cambridge Area.  He graduated from Cambridge Rindge and Latin School a couple of years ago.  He lived in Cambridge with his mother back then who currently works at a Somerville Real Estate Agency.

He spent some time attending Salem State College but most recently was back in Cambridge living near Harvard after withdrawing from his classes.

The police are not making any assumptions at this point but we are left to wonder what the man was doing hanging out inside a Harvard dorm stairway.

More updates will I’m sure follow.

Many Harvard students were interviewed on television and did not feel the incident reflected the neighborhood which they find generally safe.  I tend to agree.
