PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Police have arrested several people after gunfire in Providence Thursday morning.

Providence police showed up for reports of shots fired on Pine and Dorrance Streets, and said so far, they know one shot was fired.

The scene has been cleared outside the courthouse on Dorrance Street. No one was injured.

The incident on Pine and Dorrance Streets was actually one of four crime scenes nearby, according to police.

Officers say there was a fight right before a gun was shot. Several people fled the scene.

Investigators and K-9 units were seen combing the streets looking for evidence, and now they have arrested four suspects. They did recover a firearm.

The court house itself was put on lock down for a short period of time but has since reopened.
