An 18-year-old from New Bedford is facing several charges concerning the shooting of a Fall River woman.

According to Sergeant Moses Pereira, Detective Francisco Reis of the Major Crimes Division requested an arrest warrant for Iasia Reid in connection with a July 4th shooting incident. Reid turned himself into the Fall River Justice Center where he was arraigned on multiple firearms related offenses.

Just after 11:30 p.m., Officers responded to the 200 block of Buffinton Street in Fall River in response to a report of shots fired in the area.

Upon arrival, Officer Glenn Souza located a female victim who was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The female although alert, was bleeding heavily from a possible arterial wound to her left arm. Officer Souza quickly applied a tourniquet, to control the blood loss.

The victim, a 51-year-old Fall River resident, was transported to Rhode Island Hospital due to the severity of her injuries and has since made a recovery.

Witnesses reported hearing a loud argument in the street moments before the shots were fired.
