A 19-year-old man has died in a police officer-involved shooting in Fall River, according to family members.

Police on Monday said the shooting took place just before midnight at the corner of Riggenbach and Airport Roads.

Right after police arrived, they reported shots fired and other officers showed up to secure the scene.

Ruiz-Barreto died at Charlton Memorial Hospital, authorities said.

The Bristol County District Attorney's office is investigating whether the police shooting was justified. The caller told police a green hatchback auto was smoking and reported hearing bangs that sounded like gunshots. The DA said in a statement yesterday police were called to the scene for "possible gunshots" and came upon cars leaving the area. The person speculated as to whether they had heard a auto crash or a fight breaking out, according to police.

Authorities say the officer shot at a auto to keep it from leaving.

The driver, later identified as Larry Ruiz-Barreto, 19, of New Bedford, was transported to Charlton Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. It is unclear what happened there, but Fall River Police say the arrests occurred "after a disturbance related to" the shooting.

A police report stated learning of their loved one's death prompted "screaming and yelling" and "throwing chairs, tables, and kicking objects". Most declined comment, with one saying he was about to become a dad.
