Providence police: Teen feuding with East Side gang member caught with shotgun

Excerpt from article:

A reputed Chad Brown gang member was arrested with a shotgun Saturday amid a feud with a rival gang member that police warn could have escalated into bloodshed.

Tyrone Robinson, 19, was charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and possession of a firearm while in possession of marijuana, according to Cmdr. Thomas Verdi.

Police say he has been involved in a feud with an East Side gang member, “which has resulted in numerous calls of shots fired,” a report provided by Verdi said.

The article links to another article which suggests the cop was in uniform.

"It's disheartening anytime anyone shoots at a uniform police officer in this country, and Providence has faced that," said Providence Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare. "We're thankful today that he was well trained, well prepared, he had his vest on, and what he did probably saved his life."
