CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Cranston police have made an arrest in connection with a shooting Wednesday night near the Providence border.
Micheal McCombs, 33, of Cranston, was taken into custody just after midnight and charged with felony assault, possession of a firearm while committing a crime of violence, and carrying a firearm without a license.
Police say a man, who has not been identified, was first stabbed on Pocasset Avenue in Providence. He then ran about 30 feet over the city line into Cranston where he was shot outside a Dyer Avenue convenience store.
The victim was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital. Police say his wounds are not life-threatening and he’s expected to recover.
Police believe McCombs and the victim knew each other.
Detectives have since recovered the firearm that was used, and “a full confession was obtained relative to the shooting,” according to police.
McCombs was arraigned Thursday morning and his bail was set at $50,000 with surety. He was also ordered to surrender all firearms.
