A 79-second clip posted to the website of the Providence Journal appeared to show a brief exchange of gunfire on a busy ramp to Interstate 95 between someone in a white pickup truck and several officers, with the mall looming in the background.

A woman in the truck was injured and taken to Rhode Island Hospital in serious condition, Providence Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare said.

Earlier, Pare said nine to 10 officers fired their weapons; of those officers, five are Providence police officers. No officers were hurt. He said no weapons were found in the pickup truck.

"As that vehicle is driving in a very aggressive manner, this vehicle is now being used as a weapon in an attempt to flee and it is hitting other cars, it is ramming at least one other auto", Col. Clements said as he walked reporters through the events leading up to Santos' death.

After that, the bullet-riddled truck began pouring smoke, and police moved in.
