Billerica – On Friday, April 21, 2017, at approximately 2:21 AM, Billerica Police were contacted by a resident at #45 Oak Street reporting an unknown number of individuals had entered her home and began firing a weapon. The reporting party had reportedly fled the home along with two other adults at the time police were contacted. Nobody reported being injured during the incident. In response to the reported home invasion, and with limited information on the whereabouts of the potential suspect(s) involved, the Billerica Police set up a safety perimeter around the home and shut down Oak Street. The Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (NEMLEC) SWAT Team was requested to the scene to assist. Once NEMLEC SWAT cleared the home and the surrounding area from any potential dangers, the street was re-opened to residential traffic. At this time the incident is being investigated by the Billerica Police Criminal Bureau with the assistance of the Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene Services Section.
