Two teens were charged in Fall River after they reportedly led police on a foot pursuit.

According to Detective Sergeant Moses Pereira, on Friday, June 23, 2023, members of the Vice, Intelligence, and Gang Unit were patrolling in the Flint Section of the city. As they were doing so, their attention was drawn to a group congregating near a convenience store.

As detectives watched the group, they noticed the police officers and entered a nearby alley. Officers then made their way to speak with the group. Upon doing so, they observed two males running in the direction of Pleasant St.

The ensuing foot pursuit would continue for several city blocks. A 16-year-old male was taken into custody in the area of Choate Street and Alden Street. A loaded Hi-Point 9mm firearm was located by police in his possession, according to FRPD.

Meanwhile the second male, a 17-year-old, was apprehended in the area of Alden Street and Harrison Street.

The 16-year-old was charged with carrying a loaded firearm without a license to carry, receiving a firearm with defaced serial number, carrying a firearm without a license to carry, disorderly conduct, and disturbing the peace.

The 17-year-old was charged with disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.

    More COMMON SENSE GUN LAWS will stop these Hoodrats from carrying around loaded weapons of war. Call US Representative Jake ‘The Snake” Auchincloss .. he is working on more federal COMMON SENSE GUN LAW Legislation.

    If COMMON SENSE GUN LArWS are expanded, then we can reduce the number of Guns in circulation and ensure only juvenile criminal Hoodrats have Guns.

      Parents fault for raising thugs who believe they’ll make it by pulling robberies at gunpoint. Good 30 year prison sentence should be in order, it would set a good example for future scumbags. Get the hell out of Fall River…
