A man was seriously wounded during a drive-by shooting Monday morning on Camp Street — about four blocks from Brown Stadium — and was taken to Rhode Island Hospital where he underwent surgery, according to Providence Police Detective Lt. Paul Campbell.

The victim, identified by neighbors as Kenton Perry, is in his early 20s, according to the Providence Journal.

PPD Chief Dean Esserman told the Journal that the victim sustained “life threatening injuries” after being shot twice while walking near Camp and Grand View Streets around 10:30 a.m.
Esserman said police do not think the shooting was a random act.

As of 6 p.m. Monday night, the victim remained in recovery, and detectives were waiting to speak to him further, Campbell said.

Police are looking for a “blue, four-door Volvo with a sunroof that fled the scene,” Campbell said, adding that detectives are working on the case.
