PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Police in Providence are investigating a man shot outside an apartment complex Monday morning on Eagle Street, near Valley Street and a couple blocks from Atwells Avenue.
A 34-year-old male was shot once outside 11 Eagle Street, Providence Police Cmdr. Thomas Verdi told Eyewitness News. As of Monday afternoon, Verdi said the man was listed in stable condition at Rhode Island Hospital.
At last check with police, no one had been arrested, and police had no suspects.
“It surprises me because this area is very quiet and a lot of people come and shop in this area and it’s very safe and nothing ever happens right here,” said Antonio Concepcion, a nearby resident who has lived in the area for two years.
He told Eyewitness News he considers it a safe neighborhood and he wasn’t concerned following this incident.
“No, it’s something that just happens every once in awhile, anywhere,” Concepcion said. “So we feel good about it. We’re very sure that that wont happen again in a long time.”
