Please note: An indictment, information, or complaint is merely an allegation. The U.S. Constitution guarantees that a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
Tyler Chandler (age 23) 21 Donna Street Portsmouth, RI P1-2018-2847AG
The Statewide Grand Jury reported out an indictment charging Tyler Chandler with one count of assault with a dangerous weapon resulting in serious bodily injury, four counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, five counts of discharging a firearm while committing a crime of violence, and one count of carrying a firearm without a license.
The indictment stems from the July 2, 2018 incident in Woonsocket in which the defendant allegedly fired a gun at several Woonsocket Police officers, with a bullet striking Officer Travis Young in the thigh.
Chandler, who has been held without bail since his arrest, is scheduled to be arraigned in Providence County Superior Court before Justice Robert D. Krause on October 17, 2018.
