Man in Providence shooting dies


Providence police say last week's shooting victim on Friendship Street has died.

Police say 25-year-old Shawn Montrond died Saturday night at Rhode Island hospital.

Montrond was critically injured in a shooting October 7th.

The shooting was reported on Friendship Street at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

Investigators said there was also a second victim on Friendship Street and that they believe the two victims were targeted.

The family of Montrond tells NBC 10 he was a "peaceful soul and a man who stayed away from a life of violence".

"He got everybody in the neighborhood to go to church and he got me to believe in God," said Montrond's brother.

Providence police said the shooter is a man, but other than that they're not putting out a description of the suspect.

This is the 6th homicide in Providence so far this year.

The homicide remains under active investigation.
