PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Police in Providence continue to try and track down a suspect whom they consider to be “armed and dangerous.”
According to police, Daniel Zairis is wanted for firing a gun into a crowd at the Chad Brown housing complex Monday afternoon. Investigators believe the shots were fired as part of a feud between gangs.
Officers attempted to pull over Zairis’s car near the State House on Wednesday when police say he took off and led them on a chase, which ended with him knocking off the bumper of an unmarked cruiser and slamming into a three-story apartment building at the intersection of Orms and Bath Streets.
Zairis, 19, fled the scene on foot, but police were able to take his passenger into custody.
Eddy Lee, 18, was charged with possession of a firearm without a license.
Anyone with information about Zairis’s whereabouts should call the Providence Police Department at (401) 272-3121.
