    Cambridge police announced a fatal shooting occurred on Harvard Street in Cambridge Saturday.

    On a beautiful summer morning, families gathered at the Green Rose Heritage Park to find a murder scene across the street.

    "One of the reasons I moved to Cambridge was to get away from the violence in town," said Tara Dendy. "It seems like it's following us."

    Just after midnight Saturday, authorities found 49-year-old Anthony Clay suffering from a gunshot wound. Clay was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    This is an open and active homicide investigation being conducted by the Cambridge Police Department and Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Middlesex District Attorney's Office.

    Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Massachusetts State Police at (781) 897-6600 or Cambridge Police at 617-349-3300.
