A man was arrested after he led authorities on a chase this afternoon that started on the Tobin Bridge and wound its way into Cambridge, then Boston, and back to Cambridge, State Police said.
The suspect allegedly fled in his vehicle after a state trooper attempted to stop him on the bridge as part of a firearms investigation, said State Police spokesman David Procopio.
The man was slowed by traffic in the area of 55 Broadway in Cambridge, where the trooper caught up to the vehicle, said Procopio. The trooper fired gunshots in self-defense, Procopio said.
The suspect then fled again. State Police called off the pursuit due to safety concerns and heavy traffic.
The suspect’s vehicle was found a short time later abandoned at Charles Circle in Boston. State Police later arrested the suspect on the platform inside the Kendall Square MBTA station in Cambridge, Procopio said.
Cambridge, Boston, and MBTA Transit Police were also involved in the investigation and search for the suspect. No injuries were reported.
Authorities are not looking for any other suspects. The shots fired by the trooper are also being investigated.Derek J. Anderson can be reached at email@example.com.
