NEW: One Person Dead Following Shooting on I-95 Near Providence Place Mall
Thursday, November 09, 2017
The activity is related to someone who stole a Rhode Island State Police cruiser and then abandoned it in Providence.
Four schools in the Bucklin street area were also effected and locked down, but have since opened.
"What I can tell you is that there were four schools with restricted access this morning in the Bucklin Street area and those restrictions have been lifted -- we've been working with the police," said Laura Hart, with the Providence Public Schools Department, late Thursday morning.
A representative at the Providence Place Mall cinema box office, when reached at 11:30, said she was unaware of any plans to close the theater.
