JOHNSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Police have arrested the man accused of shooting a Johnston car dealership employee Wednesday evening.
Ramon Abreu, 44, of Providence, was taken into custody Friday morning and charged with two counts of felony assault with a dangerous weapon, using a firearm to commit a crime of violence, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a firearm without a permit.
The shooting stemmed from an argument between Abreu and two employees at City Limit Auto over work being done on his car, according to police.
Abreu left the dealership mid-argument and returned with a pistol, which police said he fired at each employee.
Police said one of the employees suffered a gunshot wound to the leg, while the other was not injured.
