Opening statements are underway in the murder trial of a 23-year-old man who is accused of conspiring with four others in a shooting that left a 12-year-old girl dead.

Luis "Fat Boy'' Gonzalez faces numerous charges including murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the shooting last June 15 at a graduation party outside the Hartford Park Housing complex.

Aynis Vargas Felix was shot to death. Three women with her were shot but survived.

The Providence Journal reports prosecutors had just begun outline a gang dispute they believe led to the shooting, when the case was interrupted by a smoke alarm Wednesday. Two men have entered guilty pleas in the case. Two others await trial.
