There are conflicting reports of injuries.   But RPD won’t confirm anything .

The supervisor at the scene told us to call the media line. We called it and no answers. Usually they tell us to look at the call logs.  We asked the supervisor if there was any injuries, he wont not confirm no r deny anything.  I asked about suspect information, again he wouldn’t say anything.  I asked if there would be a blotter, he said possibly. As of 3 am, there still is no blotter on the incident. We have called the media line, like we were directed to do so. And no answer.

So it appears as of 3 am, RPD is not going to release any information on this incident.

We saw many officers at the scene.  A crime scene unit was processing the scene. Numerous evidence markers covered the ground on the street.  Police had Vale blocked off at E State st.  E State st was still open to traffic. As of 3 am, police were still on scene.
