19-Year-Old Man Shot to Death in Providence


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ Police say a 19-year-old man has been shot to death in Providence, a month after his 20-year-old cousin was also fatally shot.
 
Police said Wednesday officers responding to a shooting on Harvard Avenue Tuesday evening found Demitri Todd of Providence about 30 feet from a Toyota Camry that had crashed into a pole. He was suffering from a gunshot wound.
 

Police say he was taken to Rhode Island Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Cmdr. Thomas Oates says police believe Todd was driving the car and shot when he came to a stop. The investigation is ongoing.
 
Oates says Todd was a cousin of Wesley Smith, who was shot to death in the city on March 27. Oates says there's no indication at this time that the killings are related.
