WOONSOCKET — Two robbers aiming to take cash and drugs from a home at 65 West Park Place early Thursday morning, Sept. 12 weren't the only ones carrying guns, and the resulting shoot out left three injured on the otherwise quiet residential street.

David Bunnell, 21, of 26 Alpine Row, Franklin, and Tyronne Seams, 27, of 163 Farm St. Woonsocket have been arrested as suspects in the incident and are currently in custody.

One of the two suspects was transported to Rhode Island Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds and is currently undergoing surgery, but police declined to identify the man.

"This is one of the things that happens when you have dealers out there, and people trying to take down the dealers," said Lee. "Four weapons were shot inside the apartment."

Speaking at a press conference Thursday afternoon, Capt. Edward Lee also declined to name a second individual who was hospitalized after being shot during the incident. According to friends and witnesses, however, 29-year-old Patrick Paine of Woonsocket, owner of Paineless Improvements, was at the scene and is being treated for critical injuries.

According to reports, around 2:15 a.m., Woonsocket Police Officer Matthew Labine was called to the scene and noticed Seams and Bunnell attempting to exit through the basement of the building. The suspects reportedly spotted Labine and ran back into the home. Bunnell, police say, was holding a sawed off shotgun by his side.

Lapine entered the building with his gun pointed at the two men, and they were taken in without further incident. Bunnell has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon in a dwelling house, and Seams has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon in a dwelling house and possession of cocaine.

The tenant of the apartment, Keinan J. McKenna, 21, received minor injuries and was treated at Landmark Medical Center. He has been charged with narcotics violations and is now in police custody.

"Obviously this is one of the ongoing negative effects of the illegal drug trade," said Lee.

Lee expressed gratitude that the injuries were limited to those directly involved with the reported crime.

"Fortunately we've escaped these incidents without any significant injury - especially to members of the public - as was the case earlier this morning," he said.

Crime scene detectives are still in the process of investigating details of the incident.
