A man on trial in connection with the murder of a 12-year-old Providence girl took the stand in his own defense today.

Luis "Fat Boy" Gonzalez told jurors he didn't realize his accused accomplice was armed until seconds before he jumped out of the van they were in and opened fire on a graduation party.

12–year–old Aynis Vargas was killed last June.

Gonzalez is accused of conspiring with four other members of the Harriet Street Gang in the deadly shooting.

He's the only one so far to go to trial.
