PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Police say a 25-year-old man who was listed in critical condition after a shooting in Providence, Rhode Island has died.

Authorities say Shawn Montrond died Saturday night at the Rhode Island hospital where he was being treated.

Officers found Montrond with life-threatening injuries following a shooting Oct. 7. Police say another victim was grazed during the shooting.

Montrond’s family tells WJAR-TV the man was a “peaceful soul,” and they say he stayed away from violence.

Police have previously said they believe the victims were targeted. Providence Police Comdr. Thomas Verdi says Montrond’s death marks the city’s sixth homicide victim this year.

An investigation is ongoing.
