Although Cranston has been dealing with gun and gang-related crimes spilling over from Providence for years, this most-recent shooting rattled Cranston residents who don't expect gunfire at one of the city's busiest intersections in the middle of the afternoon.
The shooting happened around 4:33 p.m. on Reservoir Avenue at Lambert Street, just by the J.D. Byrider used car dealership. Police haven't released many details about the incident, but detectives said shots were fired from one car into another multiple times. The intended target of the shooting was injured and drove north into Providence where he eventually stopped near a police cruiser.
