The Providence County Grand Jury reported out an indictment charging Joseph Segrain, Nathan Filomeno-Tek, John Laboy, Jose Morales, Eugene McClain, and Alexander DeJesus for their involvement in the January 9, 2017 daytime drive by shooting in downtown Providence that left Matthew DePina seriously injured.
Each defendant is charged with one count of assault with a dangerous weapon, one count of discharge of a firearm while committing a crime of violence, one count of conspiracy, two counts of possession of a firearm without a license, and one count of drive by shooting. Segrain is also charged with possession of a firearm having been previously convicted of a crime of violence.
The indictment was unsealed today by Superior Court Justice Robert D. Krause when defendants Segrain, Filomeno-Tek, Laboy, and McClain were arraigned. Warrants were issued for Morales and DeJesus, who were both apprehended out of state (Morales in Alabama and DeJesus in Massachusetts) and are awaiting extradition.
The state filed notice with the Court that it would be seeking a gang enhancement penalty. If found guilty, and if proven to be associated with a criminal street gang, the defendants will face an additional 10 years to serve.
It is alleged that on January 9, 2017, members of the "Bucket East" criminal street gang conspired to shoot members of the rival "Bucket West" criminal street gang after an altercation between the two gangs took place inside Providence County Superior Court.
Judge Krause set $250,000 surety bail on the new charges and set a date of May 24, 2017 for the first conference hearings.
Providence Police initially arrested Segrain, who has been held as a probation violator since his arrest. Filomeno-Tek, Laboy, and McClain are incarcerated for various weapons and drug offenses or in violation of probation.
The Providence Police conducted the investigation.
