North Attleboro Police, Massachusetts State Police Detectives assigned to the district attorney’s office and Homicide Unit prosecutors are actively investigating a homicide, which occurred this afternoon on High Street.

North Attleboro Police responded to 64 High Street this afternoon around 4:01 pm for a reported shooting incident.  When first responders arrived at the apartment building, they located the male victim inside his apartment suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.  The victim, a 38-year-old North Attleboro man, was rushed to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, where he was later pronounced deceased.

Since the victim’s next of kin has yet to be notified of the death, we are unable to publicly identify the victim at this time.  Once next of kin notification is made, this office will send out a follow up press release identifying the victim.

The investigation is active and ongoing at this time, and no further information about the case can be disseminated.
