Police say a man reported another car to have pulled up alongside his and fired shots into his vehicle.
The car from which the shots were allegedly fired ended up crashing and three people fled on foot.
Police later arrested Raul Otero, 22, of Pawtucket, Jovani Velez, 20, of Central Falls and Ramon Escotto, 23, of Providence.
All three are charged in the incident and are being held without bail. They will appear in District Court on Tuesday.
