On Monday afternoon at approximately 5pm officers were sent to the area of Cottage St. and Robeson St. regarding 2 males who were shot.
Both males were sitting in a vehicle when a black SUV pulled alongside them and opened fire. The male in the driver’s seat, a 24 year old New Bedford man, was shot in the side and arm. He was transported to Rhode Island Hospital and listed in serious condition. His passenger, a 27 year old New Bedford man, was shot in the hand and left elbow. He too was transported to Rhode Island Hospital and is listed in stable condition. The vehicle they were in, a red Dodge Charger, sustained 6 bullet holes. It was towed to the north end station for processing.
This investigation is still ongoing at this time. Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Paul Fonseca at 508-991-6300 ext. 135
