ADAMS, Mass. — Police are investigating a shooting on North Summer Street that occurred around 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday. 

Police Chief Richard Tarsa declined to provide detailed information at this point other than to confirm that someone was shot at 30 North Summer St. He said more information would be available later. 
 
"There was a report of a shooting and officers were detailed and are actively investigating it and someone was transported to BMC with injuries," Tarsa said at the scene. "It's still early in the investigation and we don't want to compromise anything."
 
The large apartment building at 28-30 North Summer has police tape across the front stairs to 30 North Summer. The building, which has a number of units in it, is located at the corner of North Summer and Jordan street. 
 
Both state police and Adams Police cruisers were parked in front of the building. According to reports on social media, several ambulances had initially responded to the scene. Neighbors were cautioned to stay in their homes. 
 
Police also had stopped and taken a person into custody in a dramatic encounter sometime after 4 p.m. in the middle of Columbia Street, at the intersection of Cook Street. He reportedly has been released and it is not clear he had anything to do with the shooting.
