PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) -- Providence police are on the hunt for suspects after two people were shot in the capital city.
Officers were called to Ohio Street at about 7:45 Monday night for reports of shots fired, along with a possible victim. They found a 15-year-old suffering from shotgun pellet wounds to his back, buttocks, right calf, and right ankle and a 21-year-old with multiple pellet wounds in his back.
According to the police report, the victims told police that the situation stemmed from an argument that began earlier that night on Virginia Avenue.
They described the suspects as two or three light-skinned males dressed in dark clothing, who were driving a newer model, possibly black or grey Nissan Maxima and took off towards Narragansett Blvd. following the shooting.
Police recovered a shotgun shell from the scene.
Both victims were transported to the hospital to be treated for what are considered to be non-life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported as a result of the shooting.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Providence Police Department.
