Video shows chaos during Revel Lounge shooting; Providence nightclub remains closed


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The fate of a Providence nightclub where a triple shooting took place remains up in the air for the time being.

A Providence Board of Licenses (BOL) hearing for Revel Lounge originally scheduled for Wednesday afternoon was continued for two weeks.

The O’Connell Street business agreed to stay closed until the next hearing, when the BOL will decide whether the club should lose its liquor and entertainment licenses for more time or permanently.

Revel Lounge was temporarily shut down by the BOL after three people were shot and wounded inside early Sunday morning.

Police said they responded to the club around 1:50 a.m. and arrived to find blood and clothing scattered across the floor, along with broken furniture and bottles.

The shooting victims — two men and a woman — were taken to Rhode Island Hospital in stable condition, according to police. A fourth person suffered a large laceration to her back from either being stabbed or stepped on while trying to leave the building.

While at the hospital, the woman told police a fight broke out near the DJ booth before someone started shooting.

12 News obtained footage from inside the nightclub as the chaos unfolded.

The violence comes less than two months after a man was shot and killed outside Revel Lounge. The BOL temporarily closed the club after that incident as well.

At this time, no arrests have been made in Sunday’s shooting. Police said they’re still trying to determine how the shooter got the gun past the club’s security.
