Police Investigating Shots Fired Last Night, One Male Wanted

New Bedford, MA – Police responded to two separate incidents of shots fired last night and are so far seeking to place one male into custody.

Last night at around 1 AM, police responded to a ShotSpotter activation in the area of the Summer Street/Weld Street intersection. Upon arrival, they discovered damage to the window of a Summer Street residence. No injuries were reported, and detectives are now furthering that investigation.

At about the same time, units responded to a Yale Street residence regarding a male with a gun.  Further investigation shows that a suspect identified as Mr. ALFREDO LOYA, 22, discharged a firearm at the residence before fleeing the scene.  LOYA already has several active warrants for his arrest and will also be wanted on these new charges stemming from last night’s incident.
