Board of Licenses hearing on Revel Lounge continued to Thursday
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – A triple shooting at Revel Lounge rocked Providence this past October, after three people were shot inside of the club.
Now, the City is working to find out how exactly this happened, and who is at fault.
The Providence Board of Licenses held a hearing on Wednesday after proceedings were pushed back since October.
The lounge has been in the spotlight of a vital conversation about violence in Providence. A 25-year-old man was shot and killed outside of the club in August.
On October 17, three people were shot inside the club after a fight escalated to gunshots.
In Wednesday’s hearing, Providence police officers who responded to the scene shared their account of what happened that night.
“When I went inside it looked like a hurricane hit it, tables flipped, bottles everywhere, drinks everywhere. Also blood everywhere,” explained one patrolman.
Three people were struck by bullets during the fight: two men and one woman. One of the men was in critical condition afterwards, survived, and is now recovering.
Just days after the shooting ABC6 News spoke with on of the victims, a 28-year-old mother, who was out celebrating with friends.
“I looked down at my leg and was like oh my god I am bleeding I am shot,” said Jasmine Washington.
“I trusted you for me to come into this club to pay you to come into this establishment I expected to be safe and I was not. At all.”
The hearing will continue to Thursday afternoon, and Revel Lounge is still closed.
Providence Police say as of right now, there are no suspects and have been no arrests.
This is an ongoing investigation.
