Puerto Rican festival creates havoc for Providence first respsonders

Around 10:15 tonight Providence police responded to the CVS located at Broad and Sumter Streets for multiple reports of shots fired. A female victim was located suffering from a gunshot wound to the back. She was transported to Rhode Island hospital in serious condition. No suspect description has been given at this time. The area is heavily concentrated with police, mounted units included. Reports from scanner traffic indicate that bottles were being thrown at those officers. Meanwhile a few blocks away on Harriet Street, a vehicle was found shot up. Broadcasts via scanners also indicated a group of 4-5 individuals were seen fleeing the scene. This is still young in the evening. I will try to keep this entry updated thru-out the night

Update-5:30 AM-8/27-Things rapidly calmed down after the 11 O'clock hour. There was one call for shots fired on Appleton Street just before 2 AM. There were no injuries reported in the incident.
