Feb 04, 2017 - Providence Journal

PROVIDENCE \x97 An East Providence man is accused of shooting a Barrington man outside his home Thursday afternoon in a suspected dispute over drugs.

Robert J. Fonseca, 30, said little as he appeared Friday in District Court on a charge of assault with intent to murder, along with two other charges.

A Barrington police prosecutor told Magistrate Joseph Ippolito Jr. that a confrontation between the two men became a “brazen gunshot attack” that left the victim hospitalized.
