Police in Providence, Rhode Island say that one person was killed and another was injured Thursday after a vehicle chase and shootout with several officers on Interstate 95.
NBC Connecticut reported that a suspect somehow stole a police cruiser and took off. He eventually ditched the vehicle on Potters Avenue in South Providence and then allegedly stole a white pickup truck. After receiving a description of the suspect, police initiated a chase which came to an end on I-95. There was also a woman in the passenger side of the truck, police said.
The incident was all captured on video by police body cameras and witnesses. In one video, filmed by a witness and then posted to Twitter, several officers can be seen with their guns drawn and what appears to be the white pickup truck the suspect was said to have stolen.
The truck appears to have been closed in by responding officers, who approach the passenger side of the car and fire numerous shots. Suddenly, the truck’s tires start spinning out of control and large clouds of smoke fill the air as the officers move to get out of the way.

No law enforcement officers were injured in the incident, Providence Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare told NBC Connecticut, and the woman in the car was injured. She was taken to a nearby hospital with “serious” injuries, and he condition isn’t yet known.
