A woman was fatally shot at an apartment in Taunton, Massachusetts, Wednesday night, authorities said.
Several people were in the apartment on Tremont Street at Shores Street when the shooting occurred, the Bristol County District Attorney's Office said Thursday.
Colby Dowling, a 26-year-old from Lakeville, was declared dead at the scene of the shooting after first responders arrived following an 11 p.m. 911 call, prosecutors said.
Sources tell NBC10 Boston it appears at this point the shooting may have been accidental and several friends who were inside the home are being interviewed.
