Speaker of the House Nicholas Mattiello, Mayor Allan Fung and Attorney General Peter Kilmartin raised their pistols as they approached an irate man who had just exited a vehicle.
Kilmartin shouted at the man to stop moving toward them and put his hands on the car. The three men de-escalated the situation, but thankfully it wasn’t real.
They were just testing out the new FireArms Training Simulator (FATS) at the Cranston Police Department Training Complex on Phenix Avenue, helped made possible through a legislative grant championed by Mattiello.
