December 28, 2018

DARTMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Police have arrested a man in connection with the fatal shooting of another man who was found inside a car in a Massachusetts hotel parking lot.

The Bristol County District Attorney’s office says police arrested 48-year-old Robert Rose Jr., of New Bedford, Thursday. He is facing charges of murder and misleading police.

Authorities were called to the Regency Hotel in Dartmouth Saturday evening and found 37-year-old Joseph Tavares bleeding heavily and sitting in the driver’s seat.

The Fall River man was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The manager of the hotel told police he was alerted to the car after a guest reported hearing loud thuds and breaking glass coming from the parking lot.

Rose’s arraignment is scheduled for Friday morning.
