PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Johnston man has been charged with murder in the shooting death of a Providence man outside a busy market.

The Providence Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1HuzFx5 ) that police say Zakery Khamvongsa was arrested on a warrant Sunday night at a relative’s house. He surrendered to police.

He’s accused of fatally shooting 22-year-old Anthony Mitchell who was walking out of the Rodriguez Meat Market and Grocery last Wednesday.

The motive and whether Mitchell was the intended target are unclear.

The 21-year-old Khamvongsa was arraigned Monday on a murder charge at District Court.

It wasn’t known Tuesday morning if he’s represented by a lawyer.
