By: Niza Viñas


Providence Police say a suspect has been arrested in the murder of 22-year-old Kip Stewart.

The arrest was made Friday, but the suspect’s name has not been released.

Stewart was a basketball player at Mount Pleasant High. He was shot in the head at the Hartford housing complex on Saturday night.

Stewart died Monday night at Rhode Island Hospital after succumbing to his injuries.

Police say Stewart was on a porch when the gunman opened fire and was probably not the target.

This is the city’s third homicide this year.
