An early morning shooting in the area of a back parking lot at Burger King on Hartford Avenue in Providence on Saturday leaves two Providence men wounded.
Police tell NBC 10 that two men are identified as 19 year old Brian Page and 24 year old Jamal Mansaray, both of Providence.
According to police they're investigating whether the two were together or adversaries, and say both men got to the hospital on their own.
Bruce Martin who lives in the house across the street from where the shooting happened says that he is concerned about the violence, and that he often hears fighting in the neighborhood late at night after a nearby bar closes. He told NBC 10 "yelling and screaming, one thing leads to the other, shouldn't be doing it, do you hear a lot of fighting? All the time, I live on the second floor, constant noise"
Police say there may have been some type of argument in the street prior to the shooting, but everything is still under investigation.
Both men who were shot are expected to survive, and at this time the investigation is still considered ongoing.
