NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a shooting incident in New Bedford that has left one man dead and a second person in critical condition.

Police responding to shots fired found two victims outside a Collette Street home on Friday night.

Authorities are asking anyone who may have seen anything or has any information about the shooting to contact police in New Bedford.

Prosecutors declined to release additional information, saying that the investigation is "extremely active and ongoing."
