SE Mass

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after gunshots were fired in an Attleboro neighborhood Monday night.

Attleboro police said they received multiple calls around 8 p.m. regarding shots fired in the area of Holman Street, with one of several bullets striking a home.

One person who lives on Holman Street told 12 News when he heard what he believed to be gunshots, he ran to his parent’s room where he saw his mother on the ground taking cover.

“My mom was on the floor when I went to her room because she was scared,” said Eric Munguia, who lived on the street for over 4 years.

Munguia also said he was still in shock after the incident especially with his younger cousins living just next door.

According to Attleboro Mayor Paul Heroux, the shooting was targeted but an isolated incident. “This doesn’t happen too often in Attleboro even though it’s the third shooting in two weeks but this has not happened before, it’s not a part of some greater crime wave,” he said.

More than 18 shell casings were found in the roadway, according to police. No injuries were reported from the scene.

Police said the suspect vehicle is a light-colored Jeep SUV which may have Florida registration.
