Fall River -
Police were searching for a gunman late Friday night after another man was shot in his home at 125 William St.
The victim, whose identity was not immediately available, was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, after the 7:40 p.m. incident in his first-floor apartment.
An officer rode in the ambulance with the victim to the hospital, police said. One officer said the victim was shot in the right shoulder.
Police spokesman Sgt. Paul Bernier said the victim apparently called police after a man entered his apartment and shot him once. It wasn't immediately clear if the assailant broke into the home or was allowed inside by the victim, Bernier said.
The shooter was described as a thin black man wearing dark clothing and armed with what appeared to be a silver 9mm semiautomatic handgun. He was last seen running south on Beach Street, Bernier said.
Police secured the area with yellow crime scene tape. Additional officers were summoned to the scene to assist in canvassing the neighborhood for information from possible witnesses, Bernier said.
