CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after a man was shot dead and another was seriously wounded Wednesday night in Central Falls.
Major Christopher Reed told 12 News officers responded to the area of Garfield Street and Fuller Avenue, which is down the road from the police department, for reports of shots fired.
Officers arrived to find two men in a car suffering from gunshot wounds. Reed said one of the men was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital with serious injuries.
The victims’ car crashed into a parked van shortly after the shooting, according to Reed.
Neither victim has been identified and it’s unclear whether police have anyone in custody, though Reed said the shooting does not appear to be random.
