Fall River Police responded to possible hostage situation involving gun



What appeared to be a serious situation involving a gun and hostages in Fall River on Wednesday turned out to be something much different.

According to Sergeant Moses Pereira, police responded to Hall Street after a call concerning a possible hostage situation. Once on scene, Officers secured a perimeter around the home.

As police had surrounded the home, Officers were able to speak with a family member of the calling party. It was determined that the caller was suffering from a medical issue which led to the false reporting of a hostage situation.

Pereira stated that there will be no criminal charges filed in relation with the police response.
