Fall River Police are investigating after a man was reportedly shot in the area of a shopping plaza.

According to Det. Sergeant Moses Pereira, at just before 12:30 a.m., officers responded to the 200 block of America Street in response to reports that shots had been fired in the area.

Residents reported hearing the sound of approximately 5 gunshots from the nearby commercial plaza, followed by a black colored sedan leaving the area.  A canvass of the area lead to the discovery of multiple spent shell casings as well as apparent projectile damage to a business within the plaza. Investigators located additional evidence to include a shoe and droplets of blood. 

At approximately 1:47 a.m. a 33-year-old male checked into Charlton Memorial Hospital Emergency Department with an apparent gunshot wound to his right thigh area. The victim was uncooperative with investigators and declined to provide a statement. 

The incident remains under investigation by the Major Crimes Division.
