Police are looking for a skinny Somali guy for firing up to seven shots on Northampton Street near Washington Street shortly after 7:30. Witnesses spotted him fleeing on a bike; which he apparently abandoned on East Lenox Street. A gun dog found a gun in front of the Church of St. Augustine and St. Martin.
