The police proceeded past the burning vehicle by foot towards the location where the shots were coming from. They encountered a male suspect who opened fire on the police. One officer was struck in the back by an apparent gunshot round and is being treated at a hospital. The other officers proceeded to a house where they found two adult females, one of whom was deceased and the other still alive. The surviving female victim was transported to a hospital in Rhode Island. At a different, but nearby location, additional police officers encountered the suspect and placed him under arrest.
