UPDATE: Woonsocket Police Looking for Shooting Suspect
Police are searching for a shooting suspect after a shootout ended with the victim's car backed into a home in Woonsocket.
Police were called to the scene just before 8:00PM Thursday, and found a 2004 BMW had crashed into a home on Robinson Street.
An investigation determined that the two people inside the BMW were driving on nearby Florida Avenue, when their path was blocked by a large white vehicle. The driver of that white vehicle, identified as Justin Menard, 25, got out of the vehicle and started shooting at the BMW.
The driver of the BMW then backed away from the scene, and crashed into the home on Robinson Street. The two people in the BMW suffered only minor injuries.
No one inside the home was hurt.
Police are looking for Menard, who is now facing two felony counts of assault with a dangerous weapon. If you have any information, call the call the police at 401-766-1212 or their anonymous tipline at 401-769-4444.
