Additional Arrest Made in Providence Street Gunfire Exchange

Saturday, November 17, 2018

 

An additional arrest has been made in connection with the gunfire exchange that took place in the area of Providence Street on Wednesday.

Armando Cruz, 20, is charged with two counts of armed assault to commit murder, possession of a loaded firearm without a license, use of a firearm in a felony, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building, and possession of ammunition without a license. 

Cruz was located on Thursday night just before 10 p.m. and was taken into custody after a motor vehicle stop on Waverly St.

The Incident

As GoLocalWorcester reported, on Wednesday, November 14 at about 10:25 a.m., a Worcester Police officer was working an off-duty assignment in the area of Vernon St at Ames St.

He saw a Jeep traveling North from Providence St toward Dorchester St, and saw 3 men walking north on Providence St. The 3 men on foot fired shots at the Jeep, and the officer saw the front passenger, later identified as Emmanuel Whyee, 20, of 39 New Vista Lane, fire back at the men. The three men ran away from the area.

The officer called out his position and followed the Jeep in his personal car. As several marked cruisers responded, the officer followed the Jeep to the area of Sterling St. The marked cruisers caught up to the vehicle and conducted a felony stop.

The driver of the jeep, Julianna Morin, 18, of Millbury, was removed with the passenger. A search of the jeep produced a loaded handgun in the backseat. The driver and passenger were placed under arrest and charged with armed assault to murder and appropriate weapons charges. No one involved had a license to carry a firearm.
