For the second time in less than a week, Waterloo Regional Police say they are investigating a “targeted” shooting in Cambridge.

According to a release, officers were dispatched to a parking lot near Alison Avenue and Elgin Street North at around 1 a.m. after a shooting had been reported.

Police say the officers soon discovered that a fight had broken out in the parking lot, with one man being shot in the process.

The wounded man got aid from staff at a local business, who then contacted the authorities, according to police.

Police believe Wednesday’s shooting was targeted as was another shooting that took place on Lena Crescent on Sunday.
