Police officer fatally shoots 19-year-old in Fall River

Eyewitness News has a crew at the scene and calls out to Fall River and Mass.

Fall River Police officers responded to a "disturbance call" at the intersection of Riggenbach and Airport Road shortly before 11:45 p.m. on Sunday.

The shooting is under investigation by the Bristol County District Attorney's Office, Massachusetts State Police and Fall River Police. "During this encounter, the police officer fired shots into the vehicle, striking the operator", the statement read.

A person reported that there was "a auto smoking" and they heard what sounded like gunshots. The caller was unsure if it was a crash or a fight.

MA authorities say a police officer responding to a report of possible gunfire fired shots at a vehicle to stop it from leaving, killing the driver. Further information was given describing "several cars in the area" and a 'green hatchback with stickers all over it smoking, ' " police said.

Details are emerging on both the officer-involved shooting and a series of arrests at the Charlton Memorial Hospital. That driver, later identified as 19-year-old Larry Ruiz-Barreto of New Bedford, was taken to Charlton Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Several family members and friends of Ruiz-Barreto at court yesterday shed tears and hugged in court. One man spat at a police officer and threatened to shoot and kill police. Most declined comment, with one saying he was about to become a dad.
