New Bedford Police Respond to Stabbing, Shooting in One Day
NEW BEDFORD — New Bedford police are investigating after two people were injured in a stabbing and a separate shooting that took place in the city's North End within an eight-hour span on Saturday.
Police spokesperson Lt. Scott Carola said officers responded first to a stabbing that injured a male victim in a fight about parking on Saturday afternoon.
A juvenile has been arrested in connection to the attack, which Carola said took place after an argument over the way a vehicle parked on Earle Street near Brook Street at around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5.
After being stabbed, the victim made his way to St. Luke's Hospital for treatment and is expected to recover, according to Carola.
Then at around 11:30 p.m. Saturday night, patrol units responded to a shots fired incident at Bullard and North Front streets.
Further investigation confirmed that shots had been fired, and police later learned that a woman was taken to the hospital by a private car with what Carola described as a "serious injury."
Carola said that a juvenile has been arrested in connection to the shooting but is not currently suspected of causing the victim's injury.
The investigation remains "very active," Carola said.
Police did not disclose the victim's current condition.
