WOONSOCKET – Police said they have one person in custody after a shooting incident on Saturday morning in the city.
According to a press release, police responded to a complaint that Damaso Hernandez Sr., 43, had fired shots at an unidentified victim’s vehicle as he left Hernandez’s residence at 4:52 a.m. Upon arrival police officers attempted to make contact with Hernandez who refused to exit the house.
