Providence Police announced the indictments of three more individuals connected to the shooting death of a 12–year–old girl.

Aynis Vargas was killed in June while at a graduation party during a suspected gang shooting.

Angel Valerio also known as "Yung Cyph," Luis Gonzalez also known as "Fat Boy" and an unidentified juvenile were secretly indicted on 10 counts including felony assault with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy, discharging a firearm in a crime of violence and murder. TValerio and Gonzalez were formally charged in Superior Court on Thursday. The juvenile was arraigned in Family Court on Thursday morning and is currently being held at the Rhode Island training School.

Police say gang members fired shots at the wrong crowd, killing the innocent 12–year–old. Three other innocent woman were also shot including 44-year-old Vilma Tineo, 23-year-old Elaine Devargas and 33-year-old Eugelyn Carbera-Martinez.

Two others, 21-year-old Branden Castro (aka Blaze) and 20-year-old Ricardo Vasquez, have already been charged.

"This was truly great work by the members of the Providence Police Department and justice will now be served. This case is an example of old-fashioned police work and the entire department played a role; from the aggressive patrol officers out on the streets to the work of the Detective Bureau, which was nothing short of stellar. I commend everyone involved for their relentless work on this case," said Colonel Clements.
