This video, supplied by the RI Attorney General’s office, shows a May 2020 shooting incident in Pawtucket, RI, where a boy crouches and then darts for cover when someone in an SUV pulls up and shoots at least 22 rounds in just 6 seconds.

No one was injured in this incident, however, Atty. General Neronha explains that the bullets went through the back window and through the windshield, demonstrating the massive firepower that “these weapons threaten our law enforcement, they threathen our children, they threaten us.”
