The following day, September 27th, Ricardo Vasquez, age 21, pleaded guilty before Superior Court Justice Robert D. Krause for his role in the shooting and was sentenced to life in prison.

All five are alleged to be members of the Harriet Street, or H-Block, gang. For clarification, Luis "Didi" Gonzalez is the younger brother of Luis "Fat Boy" Gonzalez.

Gonzalez is scheduled to be arraigned in Providence County Superior Court before Justice Robert D. Krause on Wednesday, November 6, 2013.
