  • WPD: No Evidence Found After Reports of Gunshots in Buttonwoods, on Church Street

    WPD personnel sickened

    Warwick Police Headquarters at 99 Veterans Memorial Drive.

    WARWICK, RI ā€” Warwick Police investigated late night reports of gunshots fired in the Buttonwoods area and near Church Street Friday, but found no credible evidence of firearms discharged.

    Several people commented on the A POSITIVE WARWICK Facebook page Friday night reporting that they heard loud bangs and saw Warwick Police cruisers racing down their streets on Church Avenue and in the area of Warwick City Park in Buttonwoods.

    “It struck me as odd right away,” said Renee Charbonneau-Potter, who lives on Church Street.

    “I was opening the door to let my kids in and I heard it clearly,” she said, two loud, quick bangs, at about 10:30 p.m.

    Charbonneau-Potter said the sounds were louder than fireworks. Police cruisers raced down her street not long after, she said.

    A resident reported on the page that police had gone door to door in the neighborhood of Park School, near Warwick City Park.

    Warwick Police reported officers investigated a report of gunshots at about 10:30 p.m., but they were unfounded. Lt. Timothy Marshal said officers routinely go door-to-door during an investigation in a neighborhood disturbance. However, he said, police found no evidence of gunshots fired or any suspects.
