PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Providence police are investigating a shooting Saturday night on Manton Avenue.
Police responded around 7 p.m. to the shooting. According to Maj. David Lapatin, one person suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Police on scene seemed to be investigating a moped that was left on the street.
A neighbor who witnessed the aftermath of the shooting tells 12 News that he was hanging out with his friends in the area when he heard multiple gunshots.
“I would say around two or three [gun shots], they were loud though, they were really loud gunshots,” Witness Jose Rodriguez said. “We look over and at first we thought it was fireworks and then we heard like a bike crash and we come running and then we see a whole crowd of people gather.”
Police said the victim was taken to the hospital. No word yet on their condition.
