PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A suspect wanted for the deadly drive-by shooting death of 22-year-old Francis Rodriguez has turned himself in to Providence police.

Chaquiro Blandino, 20, was indicted last July for Rodriguez’s murder, and also for allegedly shooting another man in a parked car back in May 2014.

Blandino is facing one count of murder, two counts of discharging a firearm while committing a crime of violence, one count of discharging as firearm from a motor vehicle, one count of possession of a firearm without a license, and one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.

He was arraigned Wednesday, and pleaded not guilty.
