Numerous fans contacted us and said there was a large fight downtown during the 4th of July celebration (Approx. 10 pm). Someone yelled there was a gun and were throwing fireworks at the police officers near Elm and Wyman.
An officer was hit with one of the fireworks, but is expected to be OK.
The RPD has no comment on the situation at this time.
We will post updates as they become available
Update: At least two people have been arrested.
After we posted this, RS fan said ” It was right as the “brawl” started: a couple ran and yelled fight fight and then shortly after we heard the shots. I often scoff at people who call fireworks gunfire but THESE were shots…about 3 of them”
