The Bourne Scenic Park is a family camping area located along the banks of the Cape Cod Canal in the town of Bourne, MA. Bourne is the first town on Cape Cod and is divided by the Cape Cod Canal, a 7-mile man-made waterway that is used by ships as a "shortcut" to avoid sailing around the entire Cape. We are one of a few Campgrounds on Cape Cod that allow Campfires. With breathtaking views and miles of bike trails it is an excellent place to realize your Cape Cod vacation. Bourne Scenic Park has become the vacation destination for more and more people visiting Cape Cod. Our New Pools are a welcome addition to your experience or just sit by your campfire on the Canal and watch the sail boats and commercial ships cruise by. The fall months bring with them, arguably, the best weather of the season to the Park. This time of year is extremely popular with people who travel in groups, as well as with owners of some of the larger motor homes that constantly visit Bourne Scenic Park...

|*** POLICE RADIO TRANSMISSIONS *** EAST FALMOUTH RESIDENCE HIT DURING DRIVE-BY SHOOTING
Friday February 16, 2024
|EAST FALMOUTH ? [DEVELOPING] ? According to the following radio transmissions, at around 8:51 p.m. last evening, Falmouth Police dispatchers began receiving multiple calls reporting shots fired on Brick Kiln Road.
Shots reportedly went through a bedroom window at an address on Brick Kiln Road. There is no indication that anyone was struck during last evening's ?drive-by,? according to radio transmissions.
Initial descriptions of a suspect vehicle fleeing the scene are that it definitely had a Massachusetts registration with a clear license plate cover on a silver sedan, according to dispatcher transmissions.
Falmouth cruisers scrambled looking for any silver or gray cars leaving the area. Moments into the call, one unit radioed that he had already checked most of Route 28 up toward the Mashpee town line.
At least four shell casings were found on scene, and at least two bullets struck the residence, according to radio transmissions.
According to one dispatch radio transmission, every single caller mentioned that the suspect vehicle had a clear license plate cover.
Near the end of the following HN ?video,? Falmouth officers began to zero in on a suspect at a residence on Teaticket Highway. Officers carefully illuminated a vehicle parked on the property and apparently located a vehicle that checked all their boxes. After carefully shining a spotlight toward the vehicle in question, one officer can be heard saying over the radio, ?that's the vehicle.?
[DEVELOPING ? NO OFFICIAL DETAILS WERE AVAILABLE AT THE TIME OF THIS REPORT.]
