The Woonsocket Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred early this morning just after midnight.  Officers were dispatched to the area outside of 156 Logee St for one report of gun shots.  Upon arrival and a canvass of the area, officers located a 33 year old male Woonsocket resident behind a nearby address.  The male was suffering from a gunshot wound.  Rescue was immediately dispatched and subsequently transported the man to Rhode Island Hospital.  The victim has undergone emergency surgery.  We believe his condition is critical.


No one else was injured.  No arrests have been made at this time.  Detectives are actively investigating this incident.  At this time, this is all of the information were able to release.  As information we’re able to release becomes available, we will do so.   Thank you.
