PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) ─ Police are investigating after two men were shot in Providence Thursday night.

The incident occurred on Hawkins Street around 7:30 p.m.

Providence Police Commander Thomas Verdi said the men, ages 27 and 43, were rushed to Rhode Island Hospital. He said one of their injuries appears to be serious.

Police are searching for possible suspects at this time and the incident remains under investigation.
