New Bedford Teen Arrested For Carrying An Illegal Gun
After responding to a “shots fired” call last night at Grinnell Street and Acushnet Ave, New Bedford cops found no one who had been shot. They did find an 18-year-old standing in the street yelling. During a chase through the Bay Village housing complex, the teen tossed a loaded .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun. After a short struggle, that’s when they arrested Luis Rafael Class.
Police also found a round of ammo in Class’s pocket. He was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and resisting arrest. It’s not clear if Class was firing the shots at someone or something in the area.
