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.

Authorities are telling people in Florida and Alabama not to call 9-1-1 unless it's a life-threatening emergency. Rescue crews are still taking place more than 24 hours after Hurricane Sally hit. About 420-thousand homes in both states are without power.       President Trump is pledging to protect Mount Rushmore amid what he calls a "radical movement" to destroy American statues and memorial sites. While speaking at the National Archives, Trump also accused the left of launching a "vicious and violent" campaign against law enforcement. He said children are taught "hateful lies" about U.S. history in classrooms.       Ice cream maker Blue Bell has to pay 17-point-two-five-million-dollars in criminal penalties following a listeria outbreak in 2015. The outbreak cased ten cases in four states, including three deaths in Kansas. This is the largest criminal penalty following a conviction in a food safety case. When Texas state officials first notified Blue Bell that its ice cream tested positive, the company did not recall the products, it just removed them from shelves.        Nike's Colin Kaepernick "Icon" jersey is sold out. The"number 7 jersey" sold out just one minute after it went on sale. The release of the jersey marked four years since the former NFL quarterback dropped to one knee during the national anthem as he protested systemic racism and social injustice.        Burger King is printing the Whopper's ingredients right on its wrapper.
