PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after a woman was shot early Tuesday morning in Providence.
Officers responding to March Street just before 1:30 a.m. found a man carrying the victim who was suffering from a gunshot wound to the neck and face area.
A witness said the woman was inside a black Hyundai when a dark-colored vehicle with tinted windows pulled up and opened fire, shooting two rounds into the driver’s side window before fleeing.
“I woke up to a woman, she was screaming and crying and I didn’t know what happened,” one neighbor, who wanted to remain anonymous, said.
“I looked out the window and she was crying and screaming. People were saying ‘oh she got shot,’ and she was holding her face,” they continued.
The woman was taken to the hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.
Detectives were seen Tuesday combing through a grassy area outside 35 March St.

It’s unclear at this time what led up to the shooting.
It happened on the same street where a teenager was shot and killed on April 15.
The neighbor told 12 News that people are concerned because on top of these two shootings, there has been at least one more instance of gunshots going off in recent weeks.
“In two weeks, they shot up the same place looking for the same people,” the neighbor said.
A police report from April 11 shows police were called to the same location around 11:30 p.m. for a report of gunshots. The caller showed the officers how a bullet went through her kitchen window and hit a wall. No people were struck.
A witness told police they saw a light-skinned Hispanic male wearing all black running through the courtyard after the shooting.
