Officers say shortly after 10 a.m. they responded to a shooting near a home on Governor Morrison Street in the Providence Division, and were told the apartment manager had already notified police earlier of a missing person potentially inside an apartment.

As a result, a representative from the apartment management tried to conduct a welfare check when an occupant inside the residence shot at the victim, according to a news release.

Detectives say the victim was able to get to a safe location after being shot at and did not require any medical treatment.

Police say they were unable to determine if the suspect was inside the residence after the shooting, so officers secured the surrounding area while SWAT team members conducted a search.

Detectives say SWAT did not find the suspect inside the residence and the surrounding area was deemed safe.

The investigation into this case is active and ongoing.

Police say anyone with more information is asked to call 911 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600
