PAWTUCKET â€” Local police have arrested a city man as a suspect in the Election Day shooting that left another man wounded on a Smithfield Avenue sidewalk.
On Nov. 6 at around 10:30 a.m., Pawtucket Police had responded to a reported shooting in the area of 558 Smithfield Ave. When officers arrived, they found the victim, 28-year-old Terrance Myers, of Providence, injured from several gunshot wounds. None of the wounds appeared to be life-threatening, police said.
According to Pawtucket Police, Myers said he had gone to a house at 812 Weeden Street to settle a dispute he was having with someone who lived there. He said he became involved in an altercation with a group of males, possibly as many as six. Myers said that during the altercation, he was shot by one of the males. He said he fled the Weeden Street address and ran to 558 Smithfield Ave. seeking help.
After an investigation, Pawtucket Police detectives requested that a warrant be issued for a suspect identified as Marcus Lopes, 20, of Central Avenue in Pawtucket. On Thursday, Lopes was arrested by police in Revere, Mass. Police say Lopes provided the Revere Police officers with a false name. His true identity was revealed after his fingerprints were examined.
Lopes waived extradition to Rhode Island and was arraigned on Friday in District Court, Providence. He was charged with assault with the intent to commit murder, firing in a compact area, and possession of a firearm without a license, police said.
