Drive-By Shooter in Falmouth Faces Charges

Charges are pending against a man who allegedly shot at a woman walking down Carriage Shop Road, East Falmouth, on Sunday afternoon.

The woman called the Falmouth Police Department at 12:51 PM to report that she was shot at by someone in a passing car. She was walking in the area of the Falmouth Rod and Gun Club at the time, and the vehicle took off toward Mashpee. She was not injured.

Falmouth police relayed a description of the vehicle to the Mashpee Police Department, and  Mashpee police located the car in Mashpee around 1:30 PM. Officers conducted a pat search on the suspect, he said, and located a 9mm semi-automatic handgun.

Chief Collins said the matter was turned back over to the Falmouth Police Department because the incident occurred in their jurisdiction.

Lieutenant Brian L. Reid of the Falmouth Police Department said the investigation was wrapped up earlier this week and charges are pending against the suspect
