An active shooting investigation has just begun, as one man today was shot in the arm and shoulder in the west side of New Bedford, near the Westlawn Housing Projects, on Maxfield Street.

Suspect is described as an African American male with a pony tail, about 5'11", a black hoodie, and black pants who was last seen getting into his escape car (whether it was his or not is unknown at this time) around 6PM.

Anyone with details is urged to call The New Bedford Police Department.
