    One man was killed and another injured in a Halloween night shooting in Providence, Rhode Island.

    Police say the 28-year-old deceased victim was found in a car with out-of-state plates on Nicholas Brown Yard at around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

    A stray bullet also struck a 33-year-old man in a nearby apartment. He was taken to the hospital. The victims likely did not know each other.
