Suspect arrested in Woonsocket shooting

By News Staff

Woonsocket Police say they’ve arrested a suspect following a shooting Monday night.

Gun shots were heard around 10:00 p.m. Monday night in a backyard on East School Street. Upon arrival, police say they found that a man, described as 27 years old and Asian, had been shot.

The victim was taken to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment, but police did not release his name or condition.

Eyewitness descriptions of a man who was seen fleeing the yard led police to Angel Pascual, 20, of Woonsocket, who police say was carrying a semi-automatic handgun at the time of his arrest.

Pascual faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon. His arraignment was Tuesday morning.
