Three Providence, R.I., police detectives have been shot and wounded during a drug raid.

Detective Charles Boranian told The Associated Press on Monday night that the three detectives suffered non-life-threatening injuries. One was shot in the leg, another in the foot and a third was grazed on his arm during a raid in Providence's West End neighborhood.

The detectives were taken to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment. The injured detectives were not immediately identified.

Attorney General Patrick Lynch was among those who visited the hospital to check on their condition.

WJAR-TV reported that one suspect was taken into custody and is being treated for injuries sustained during the arrest.
