Fall River Police Investigating After Man Shot in Leg
FALL RIVER — Fall River Police are seeking a suspect in a shooting that took place Friday night.
Friday night at approximately 9 p.m., the Fall River Police Department responded to a call concerning a male shot in the leg. A male identified as 29-year-old George Mobley was found at the scene with a gunshot wound to his upper right leg. Fall River Police and EMS rendered aid to Mr. Mobley who was transported to Rhode Island Hospital for further treatment.
Two shell casings were also recovered at the scene. One casing was found in the street and the other was found on the porch of 64 Rocliffe Street.
Detective Dwaine Cabeceiras and Officer Michael Perreira continued the investigation at Rhode Island Hospital, and attempted to speak with Mobley. He became uncooperative with investigators. A search warrant was applied for and granted for Mobley's third floor apartment. The search warrant was later executed, and no further evidence was found. Based on the initial investigation, this does not appear to be a random act of violence.
At this time, the Fall River Police Department is seeking the public's help in identifying any possible suspects involved in this incident. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Dwaine Cabeceiras of the Major Crimes Division at (508) 324-2796. Anonymous tips are accepted using the Fall River Police TIPS line at (508) 672-TIPS (8477).
Mobley's condition is stable and he is awaiting release from Rhode Island Hospital.
