PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A man has been shot in Roger Williams Park after a dispute over a dirt bike.

Police say Marvin Novegil, 25, suffered a non-life threatening injury when he was shot in the leg Saturday around 4:30 p.m.

They say Novegil and his brother confronted a man they say stole his bike near the park’s casino. But the man started shooting at the brothers before fleeing on foot.

The suspect is identified as a dark skinned Hispanic male, in his 20’s and with tattoos on his arms. He was last seen wearing a white muscle shirt and cargo shorts.

Police are asking anyone with information to call them at 401-272-3121.
