The deer broke through the window of Superior Tire, at 32 Mass. Ave., according to Channel 7 video showing the business

 No person was hurt, and no one was inside the business when the incident occurred. 

“We’ve had deer get into residences and businesses in Arlington like this before, but it doesn’t happen too often,” Capt. Richard Flynn was quoted as saying at

A witness told police that he saw a deer run from the Alewife Brook Parkway area across Mass. Ave. "at a high rate of speed" and crash through the window.

Inside, police found droplets of blood but could not initially locate the deer. It was eventually found at the far left corner of the building.

The deer appeared to have sustained large wounds to the next and stomach. After consulting with Mass. Environmental Police, officers decided the deer had to be euthanized.

Police had declined to release the name of the shop to, but YourArlington asked, and on May 26 received a police report that identifies it.

A deer also smashed through two windows at a restaurant in Waltham last week, but walked away with minor injuries, the website reported
