Police seek suspect in shooting of driver, who then crashed into house

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.

Lavarnway, PawSox top Durham

July 15, 2011

PAWTUCKET — The fans came to see Carl Crawford and went home talking about Ryan Lavarnway.
Crawford, in his first of two rehab games with Pawtucket, reached base in all three of his at-bats during Pawtucket’s 3-2 win over Durham on Friday night. He blooped a single over the second baseman’s head in the first, walked in the third, and reached on a fielder’s choice in the fifth, scoring one batter later when Lavarnway crushed a home run down the left field line that cleared everything, bouncing around in the parking lot as the crowd collectively murmured “Who is this guy?”
