WOONSOCKET â€“ A house in the Fairmount section was struck by at least five rounds from a .45-caliber handgun fired from a passing car Sunday night, police said.
Detective Sgt. Matt Ryan said the shots struck the residence of a man who had been involved in a bar fight moments earlier, at around 10 p.m.
â€śThere were two men involved, while several of their friends looked on, about six or seven people in all,â€ť said Detective Sgt. Matt Ryan.
â€śPunches were thrown. There was a scrum. Then everybody got in their cars and left the area.â€ť
PROVIDENCE â€” Some people argue that because the lieutenant governor no longer has specific constitutional duties, the office should be done away with. But R.I. Secretary of State Ralph Mollis, who officially announced he is running for lieutenant governor on Monday, says it is that very lack of a job formal description which â€śallows for vision, allows for leadership, allows someone to tackle the problems of today.
