PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) - Central Falls police have arrested a city man they allege choked his girlfriend and shot two of her relatives.

Alton Oliveira is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday following his arrest Wednesday in Pawtucket.

Police say the 23-year-old Oliveira shot two people at the apartment he shares with his girlfriend on Wednesday. They were both taken to the hospital with injuries not considered life threatening.

He also allegedly choked his girlfriend before fleeing in a moving truck with two other men.

They were tracked to Pawtucket where they were arrested.

Oliveira faces charges including domestic assault with a deadly weapon and strangulation. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
