WARWICK -- The police have released the names of the man who was killed and the two people injured in a shooting early this morning in Warwick.
The man who died was identified as Gabriel Medeiros, 35, of 43 Warwick Lake Ave., the scene of the shooting.
The two injured people are the dead man's brother, Caesar Medeiros, 43, and Caesar's wife, Claire Medeiros, 39, also of 43 Warwick Lake Ave.
The survivors told the police that they awakened to find a masked gunman in their home just after midnight. A violent struggle ensued.
Gabriel was shot in the chest. Caesar Medeiros and Claire Medeiros were also shot. They are being treated at Rhode Island Hospital for injuries that are apparently not life threatening.
The police believe the gunman was also injured in the struggle, but wouldn't say how he was injured.
The police searched the area last night with dogs, but didn't find the suspect. Nobody has been arrrested.
The police don't have any evidence to indicate that the victims knew the gunman.
