Police: Man fatally shot at Providence auto body shop
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Police say a man has been shot to death while waiting for a car to get fixed at a Rhode Island auto body shop.
Providence police Maj. David Lapatin says the man was at LaTour Auto Body when he was shot at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. He was identified Wednesday as 36-year-old Freddy Tola, of Providence.
Lapatin says it appears Tola was targeted by a shooter who was waiting outside the business.
Police do not think the public is at risk.
Tola’s mother tells WJAR-TV that the car was registered in her name and her son leaves behind two teenage children.
Witnesses are being interviewed and there was no word on any arrests.
