PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Providence police say a man in his 20s has been shot to death in the city’s second homicide of the year.

Officers were called to Chalkstone and River avenues on reports of gunfire just after 1 a.m. Friday. Police say they saw glass and blood on a sidewalk, but couldn’t find the victim.

Authorities were later called to Roger Williams Hospital on a report of a man being treated for a gunshot wound to his head. The victim was transferred to Rhode Island Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police haven’t released information on suspects or a motive.

The city’s first homicide victim of the year, 24-year-old Nelson Sanchez of Providence, was shot to death in a car last week by someone in another car. No arrests have been announced.
