At 11:05 p.m. last night, homicide suspect JAYDEN SMITH, 16, was arrested in Fall River by the State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section, the State Police Detective Unit for Bristol County, the State Police Gang Unit and Fall River Police Gant Unit, the Fall River Police Major Crimes Unit, and Fall River patrol officers.
State Police placed SMITH, who is wanted for a July 10, 2016 shooting homicide in Fall River, on their Most Wanted fugitives list last week.
Shortly after SMITH was placed on the MSP Most Wanted list, troopers developed information that narrowed their search to Fall River. Late last night troopers and officers located SMITH in an apartment and placed him under arrest on homicide and firearms charges.
SMITH is charged with the homicide of 29-year-old Jerrod Cohen. Further media inquiries should be directed to the Bristol District Attorney’s Office.
