PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Providence man is under arrest in connection with what police say was a shootout on a city street.
Police say an officer heard several gunshots shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday and stopped one of two vehicles in which passengers were apparently shooting at each other.
Authorities say the officer found six people and a loaded gun in the van he stopped, and the van had several bullet holes.
Twenty-one-year-old Rachana Senghirann was charged with illegal possession of a firearm and drive-by shooting. The five other people in the van were released pending further investigation.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Senghirann has a lawyer who could respond to the allegations.
Police haven’t said what led to the shootout.
