PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after a 20-year-old man was shot in Providence Monday evening, according to Providence Police Commander Thomas Verdi.
The incident occurred inside an apartment on Manton Avenue around 6:15 p.m.
Verdi said the victim was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital in critical condition.
This comes just days after the city recorded its 23rd homicide this year, when a 33-year-old man was gunned down near Providence College.
