Man shot in Pawtucket

PAWTUCKET – On Saturday, June 29, at approximately 3:40 a.m., the Pawtucket Police Department received a phone call reporting possible shots fired on Maynard Street. When the police arrived they could not locate any type of crime scene or victims.

A short time later, according to a report from police, a call was received at the Providence Police Department that there was a shooting victim at Rhode Island Hospital and the victim had indicated that he was shot somewhere in Pawtucket.

The victim was later identified as 30-year-old Louis Dos Santos who has addresses in both Pawtucket and Central Falls. The victim's injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

No suspects have been identified at this time and the investigation is ongoing.

Initial facts suggest Dos Santos may have been targeted and that this was not a random act.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Richard Laforest at 401-727-9100, ext. 761.
