Police: 9 wounded in Providence, Rhode Island, shooting

Source: ABC

Nine people were wounded Thursday evening in Rhode Island's capital in what police there believe to be the largest shooting in city history.

Of the nine, three had serious injuries and were “maybe critical," Providence Police Chief Col. Hugh T. Clements told reporters at the scene.

He said multiple guns were used and it involved an “ongoing feud” involving two groups known to authorities. He said the shooting began with gunfire emanating from a vehicle, targeting a home. A person or people inside the home then returned fire. He described the participants as “young men."

Clements said an estimated several dozen shots were fired. Evidence markers showing where more than a dozen shell casings littered the ground could be seen in the distance.

3. Would you talk to to police, considering the countless stories of police being called and then

arresting the caller, attacking someone, brutalizing someone, or shooting and killing their dog while laughing about it?

Gang violence? Police violence? Rock and hard place.
