    Police are investigating after two young men were wounded by an unknown gunman in a drive-by shooting in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. 

    Maj. Tina Goncalves says the victims, a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old, were rushed to Miriam Hospital early Thursday evening before police arrived to the scene. 

    Officers were dispatched to the intersection of West Avenue and Sterry Street after receiving a report of shots fired around 6:30 p.m. 

    Witnesses told police a black Nissan Maxima pulled up to a residence where a group of teens were standing on the front porch and opened fire. The group fled, but the vehicle continued pursuit and fired additional shots.
