CENTRAL FALLS — Central Falls Police are investigating the shooting of four people that occurred outside a multi-family house at 36 Hadwin St. late Wednesday night.
Police and rescue personnel responded to the location, near the corner of Hadwin and Tremont streets, shortly after 10 p.m. for a report that multiple people had been shot. It has been reported that at least three people were transported to local hospitals for treatment of gunshot wounds. Two of the victims were reported to have been taken to Rhode Island Hospital and one to Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island in Pawtucket.
Witnesses told members of the media that they believed at least one of the victims had been struck in the head during the shootings but that information could not be confirmed with police. The names and conditions of the victims have not yet been released. It also could not be determined Thursday whether the fourth person reported to have been wounded required medical treatment.
Multiple neighbors have described the house as place where police are frequently called. Police so far have remained tight-lipped about the crime and the investigation.
