Police: Man shot in ankle while driving in Providence


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A man was shot in the leg while driving in Providence Sunday night, according to the police report obtained by Eyewitness News.

The report says the man was driving down Douglas Avenue in the area of Veazie Street Elementary School when he heard a loud noise and felt a sharp pain in his left ankle.

After the man realized he’d been shot, he drove himself to Roger Williams Hospital for treatment.
