Description: An ABC6 crew was on assignment in Providence when they were assaulted in broad daylight. It started with a simple question that led to a violent response. The crew was on Public Street in Providence, attempting to get reaction from the mother of the teenage girl who was shot at a graduation party over the weekend.
Instead of declining to speak on-camera, Melissa Lawrence replied "OK, that's good," and then suddenly hurled a rock at ABC6 photographer Marc Jackson. The rock just missed the photographer's head. The crew then started to leave, but Lawrence came out wielding a baseball bat. She then told her two dogs to attack.
