The suspect in question is James Harrison. Two people have been killed and a child has been injured in a shooting incident that took place in Rhode Island. The shooting reportedly occurred due to a dispute over the suspected shooter’s alleged act of peering into a neighbor’s house.

According to WPRI, James Harrison, a 52-year-old man who was the alleged gunman, was shot and killed by police following a chase and standoff at the Johnston-Cranston city boundary.

According to sources, the victims of the incident have not yet been identified. However, it has been reported that one of the fatalities is the mother of Harrison, who resided with her at 4 Ligian Court.

According to sources and police, Harrison’s residence was visited by the police around midnight on Tuesday, but he declined to respond to their knock on the door. According to a neighbor, a loud noise was heard at approximately 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday. Shortly thereafter, Harrison was seen leaving his residence before emergency responders arrived on the scene.

According to Chief Mark Vieira of the Johnston Police Department, his department received two 911 complaints regarding shots fired at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday. One of the complaints was made from 2 Ligian Court.

Following the issuance of a search warrant for Harrison, police were able to locate his vehicle parked in a cemetery thanks to the efforts of an off-duty officer.

According to Cranston Police Chief Michael Winquist, upon the arrival of the officers, Harrison drove his vehicle towards them in a head-on manner, almost hitting their vehicles. Following the incident, a chase ensued.

According to officials, police pursued Harrison along Plainfield Pike, where he reportedly drove recklessly and even clipped a Cranston police cruiser. Harrison then allegedly jumped the center median and ultimately crashed into a rock. The individual was surrounded by law enforcement shortly thereafter, and was directed to exit the automobile.

After managing to escape, the individual proceeded to point a firearm at law enforcement officials, who responded by using lethal force to neutralize the threat. According to sources, no officers were reported injured, however, a few were transported to nearby medical facilities for assessment.
