NEW BEDFORD, Mass., (WPRI) - New Bedford police Thursday said they're on the hunt for a suspect wanted in connection with a double shooting earlier this week.
Detectives secured an arrest warrant for Aaron Bookman, 18, of New Bedford after Tuesday night's shooting near the Holy Family Holy Name school at the intersection of Summer and Mills Streets.
Two people were shot in the leg.
Police are hoping the public will help them locate Bookman. They urged anyone who knows his whereabouts to call 911 immediately; Text-a-Tip to 274637 using the keyword CALL50; or by going to their tip website.
In the meantime, police said the investigation is moving forward as they continue to question eyewitnesses.
A fire broke out early Wednesday evening at the Amtrol building on Division Road in West Warwick.
A man was found dead in a carbon monoxide-filled home in Coventry Wednesday night, according to police and firefighters.
A pedestrian was struck and killed while crossing the street in Warwick Wednesday evening.
As the temperature drops, the demand for space heaters goes up; but these small heating devices are already responsible for three deaths over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Police say they found newspaper clipping related to mass shootings in the suspect arrested in connection to a University of New Haven gun scare.
