A 19-year-old Fall River man has been arrested on firearm charges connected to the ongoing homicide investigation in that city this evening.
Keishon Workman was taken into custody by Fall River Police in the Corky Row section of Fall River shortly after the shooting was reported. He was formally charged this evening with carrying an illegal firearm, carrying a loaded illegal firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.
The defendant will be arraigned on the charges tomorrow morning in Fall River District Court.
Fall River Police, Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Bristol County District Attorney’s office and Homicide Unit prosecutors continue to actively investigate the homicide, which occurred in The City of Fall River late this afternoon.
Fall River Police received 911 calls around 4:30 pm regarding shots fired and a male victim in the area of 408 South Main Street. When police and other first responders arrived on scene, they located a 24-year-old city man who had sustained gunshot wounds. The victim was rushed to Saint Anne’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The victim’s identity cannot be released at this time as next of kin have yet to be notified of the death. Once full next of kin notifications have been made, this office will send out a follow up media advisory.
The medical examiner will take custody of the deceased and conduct an autopsy.
