    Authorities in New Bedford, Massachusetts, made two arrests in connection with Monday's shooting that injured a 60-year-old man.

    Estefanie Helena, 19, and Justin Ortega, 20, were apprehended Friday afternoon in the Bronx, New York, where it is believed they were staying with a relative, and taken back to Massachusetts.

    The two are accused of assault and battery by discharge of firearm among other charges.
