PROV­I­DENCE (AP) — Prov­i­dence po­lice say a Bos­ton man has been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with a fa­tal shoot­ing in the Rhode Is­land city ear­lier this month.

Po­lice said Fri­day that 36-year-old Arnold Evans was ar­rested Thurs­day and will be sent to Prov­i­dence to face a mur­der charge in the death of Tyrone Williams.

The 27-year-old Prov­i­dence man was in a car with his girl­friend shortly af­ter mid­night July 1 when some­one fired on them. Williams tried to flee on foot but was chased and shot again. He died at the hos­pi­tal. The woman wasn’t in­jured.

Po­lice have said they think Williams knew his as­sailant. The death was the city’s sixth homi­cide of the year. It could not im­me­di­ately be de­ter­mined if Evans has a lawyer.
