August 14, 2014

PAWTUCKET – No one was injured and three people were arrested Wednesday night after a reported shooting incident outside an apartment building on John Street, police said.

At approximately 6:20 Wednesday night, police received several calls from people who reported hearing gunshots near an apartment building at 48 John St. and seeing a black Lexus fleeing the scene.

When officers arrived at the apartment building, they interviewed witnesses who said the gunfire erupted shortly after a black Lexus pulled up in front of the apartment building. Police said the shots were fired by a person or group of persons who had either come out of the building or were already outside the building when the car pulled up.
Police were able to locate a 9mm pistol as well as spent shell casings inside the building, and several individuals were taken into custody. The driver of the Lexus was also arrested after another officer spotted the vehicle on Newport Avenue. The vehicle had two bullet holes in the driver’s side door.
