Shots Fired in New Bedford Cause Property Damage
NEW BEDFORD — Another incident of shots fired in New Bedford, this time with property damage in the near North End on Tuesday night.
A Facebook post from the city's police union states that north end units responded to a ShotSpotter gunshot detection system activation at 107 Reynolds St. at around 11:15 p.m. Tuesday.
Officers arrived to find "evidence of the incident," according to the post, which did not elaborate further.
According to New Bedford police logs, a firearm was discharged within 500 feet of a building — which is against Massachusetts law.
The incident is also recorded as malicious destruction of property in the police logs.
An investigation into the shots fired incident is ongoing.
It comes a few weeks after another incident of shots fired took place at Blue Meadows on Dartmouth Street in early May.
