July 16, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The four loud bangs heard just before 8 p.m. Thursday sounded like fireworks to Zuleyma Neco, 22, of 44 Florida St. But the noise actually turned out to be gunfire and Neco, in her apartment with her own small children and those of her mother, saw the aftermath of a crime when she looked out the window.
A car had backed into the side of her next-door neighbor’s home after its 27-year-old driver was shot twice by someone in another car.
“It scared us,” said Neco, who had been caring for her three children and her mother’s two children.
