R.I. man charged in Pawtucket killing


A Rhode Island man has been charged with murder in a deadly altercation between neighborhood groups in Pawtucket. A Providence County grand jury has indicted Darrell Johnson of Pawtucket on a single charge of murder and two firearms charges. The indictment was announced Friday by the state attorney general’s office. Authorities said Johnson, 20, fatally shot Joshua Burgo, 21, in the chest following an altercation behind an elementary school last July. Johnson was quickly named as a suspect following the shooting but was not taken into custody until November, when he was arrested in Virginia by US marshals. (AP)
