Fall River Double Homicide Victims Identified
The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office has released the identities of the two people killed yesterday in a shooting in Fall River near Griffin Park.
The 29-year-old victim pronounced dead at Saint Anne's Hospital has been identified as Jovaughn Antonio Mills of Fall River.
The 14-year-old victim pronounced dead at Charlton Memorial Hospital has been identified as Miguel Sanjurjo of Fall River.
According to the D.A.’s Office, the third shooting victim, a 19-year-old Fall River man, continues to be treated at Rhode Island Hospital and, according to physicians, is expected to recover from his wounds.
The incident continues to be investigated by Fall River Police, Massachusetts State Police detectives assigned to the district attorney’s office, and homicide unit prosecutors.
Fall River Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Matthew Malone confirmed that Sanjurjo was a student at Resiliency Preparatory Academy and that faculty and staff was providing counseling for those that wanted it.
“As this incident occurred in a public park in the afternoon, we have many students who were in the area of the park,” Malone said. “We have increased Fall River Police officer presence in our schools and we are working closely with them as this is an ongoing and active investigation.”
