Providence Police ID Murder Suspect

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – Police are looking for a 19-year-old Providence man they say fatally shot his aunt's boyfriend.

Police say 19-year-old Dujuan Powell shot 30-year-old Pedro DeJesus on Sunday while trying to break up an argument between DeJesus and his aunt.

Maj. Thomas Oates III says the woman was arguing with DeJesus about the volume at which he was playing music.

When the argument got physical and DeJesus shoved her, Powell, who was visiting, pulled out a gun and shot DeJesus.

Powell then fled the scene. An arrest warrant has been issued charging him with murder. It was the city's 16th homicide of the year.

Anyone who knows Powell's location is asked to call police.
