PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after an officer-involved shooting left a man critically injured Friday night, 12 News has learned.

The shooting stemmed from a police pursuit that began in Burrillville and ended in the capital city, according to Providence Police Chief Oscar Perez.

Perez confirmed that two Providence officers shot at the suspect’s vehicle on Gay Street near Women & Infants Hospital. It’s unclear at this time what prompted them to open fire.

“We’re trying to find out exactly what occurred,” Perez said, emphasizing that the investigation is extremely active and ongoing.

The suspect, who Perez believes is a Glocester resident, was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital.

Perez said there were two passengers inside the car, one of whom was hit by gunfire. The severity of the passenger’s injuries is unknown.

The Rhode Island Attorney General’s Office is investigating the incident, which is required by state law.
