Providence police find bloody scene but no victim or assailant

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Providence police responded to 112 Gordon Ave. at about 10 p.m. Sunday after someone, whom the police are not identifying, called in a shooting.

When detectives arrived they found “what they believed was a crime scene,” Maj. David Lapatin said.

There was no victim and no assailant but a lot of blood, Lapatin said.

Shortly after, Lincoln firefighters found the charred remains of an adult while putting out a brush fire on Lincoln Meadows Drive.

Lapatin said he is not saying this is the Gordon Avenue victim, but stressed that the Providence police “have an interest in what happened in Lincoln.”

Correction: An earlier version of this story misstated the time when the police arrived at the scene.
