CRANSTON − A home invasion led to a shootout in Cranston on Wednesday night, leaving bullet holes in nearby cars and homes and sending one person to an area hospital with a non-fatal wound, police said.
Three people, two of them armed, showed up at the house on Smith Street on Wednesday night. One person in the house was also armed with a gun. Shooting started inside the house and then spilled into the street, with bullets hitting nearby houses and cars, WJAR-TV reported, citing Winquist.
WPRI-TV reported the one injury was a gunshot to the head, but said the victim will recover.
"It's a quiet, safe city, but there are things that happen in a city, as you know," Winquist said after the shooting. "We are really concerned, but this was a targeted incident, we're very confident of that, and our detectives will work hard to bring the people responsible to justice."
Outside the house on Thursday morning, one black Mercedes-Benz sedan was on the back of a tow truck and the yard was filled with inflated Christmas decorations. Police could been seen talking to occupants in neighboring houses.
