At approximately 8:00pm Wednesday night the New Bedford Police Department received multiple 911 calls reporting gunfire in the city’s south end.
The first units arrived at the corner of Ruth and Ashley Streets to find multiple shell cases on the ground. Residents stated that there were so many shots fire that they thought someone was setting off fireworks.
At least one person has been confirmed transported to St. Luke’s Hospital and reportedly one other with minor injuries.
