After the victim fled from the vehicle, the vehicle then struck a parked car. The suspect then ran away.

The victim was taken to Dorchester General Hospital where he was treated for his injury and released.

The shooting is still under investigation and anyone with additional information is asked to call the Cambridge Police Criminal Investigation Division at (410) 228-3333.
