PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Police are investigating two shootings that left three men wounded, at least one critically.

Police Chief Hugh Clements says two men were shot early Thursday afternoon in a drive-by shooting on New York Avenue.

Clements says the victims, who were not immediately identified, were found on the front porch of a home. They were taken to Rhode Island hospital where one was listed in critical condition. The other had injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

About 90 minutes later and two miles from the first scene, police said a young man was found shot inside a car. His condition wasn’t known.

Clements says investigators are looking into whether the shootings were connected.

Mayor Jorge Elorza, who went to both scenes, said there are simply too many guns on the streets.
