Louie Amaral, 18, of Somerset Street, South Providence, was arrested Tuesday and charged with the shooting last Thursday of Alvarez High School student Edwin Dilone, a 17-year-old believed to be associated with a rival gang, according to the police.
Amaral was ordered held on $125,000 surety bail for three charges: assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm without a license, and possession of a firearm while committing a crime of violence.He entered no plea, as is customary in District Court. He was ordered to have no contact with Dilone. Providence Police Detectives Michael Fallon and Daniel O'Connell arrested Amaral on Somerset Street Tuesday.Providence Police Maj. Thomas Oates said this morning that Amaral had been standing 6 feet from his friend Camerena at that March 7 birthday party when Camarena, 17, was shot and killed.The police did not want to identify the rival gangs. However Teny Gross, executive director of the Institute for the Study & Practice of Nonviolence, has said that Camerena was a member of M.O.P. (Members of Pine Street) which was feuding with C-Block, a gang from Congress Avenue in the Elmwood section of Providence.The Providence police said Tuesday that Dilone remained hospitalized in serious condition at Rhode Island Hospital. Rhdoe Island Hospital today said it does not have any information on a patient by the name of Edwin Dilone.Police probation officers, schools, and the community are trying to curb the simmering gang rivalry.Since the two shootings, the police and the South Side community are getting out into the neighborhood, working to keep a gang feud from boiling over.
