Nine people were wounded in a shooting in Rhode Island's capital in what police there believe to be the largest shooting in city history.
Of the nine, three were critically wounded in the shooting on Thursday night, Providence Police Chief Colonel Hugh T Clements told reporters at the scene.
He said multiple guns were used and it involved an "ongoing feud" involving two groups known to authorities.
The shooting began with gunfire emanating from a vehicle, targeting a home, Clements said.
A person or people inside the home then returned fire. He described the participants as "young men".
Clements said an estimated several dozen shots were fired.
No arrests have been made and Clements stressed the investigation was in its early stages.
Detectives were at the hospitals interviewing the victims, who are between the ages of 19 and 25.
