PROVIDENCE, R.I. WLNE – Police announced Thursday they have made an eighth arrest in connection to the deadly Federal Hill stabbing that occurred in June.

23-year-old Sharkym Brown of Providence was taken into custody Thursday morning in connection to the murder of 25-year-old Stephen Cabral Andrade.

According to police Andrade was killed by a group of men after leaving Club Seven on Spruce Street. They allege the fight spilled into the Walgreens parking lot on Atwells Avenue where Andrade was brutally beaten and stabbed.

Club Seven was closed temporally after the murder but recently allowed to reopen by Rhode Island’s Department of Business Regulation. The club declined to do so.
