    A Boston man has been arrested in connection with a murder in Providence, Rhode Island.

    Rashawn Banks, 27, will be arraigned Friday in Roxbury District Court on a fugitive from justice charge before being returned to Rhode Island to face charges in connection with the shooting death of 25-year-old Jacorey Sanders.

    Sanders was found shot in his car on Garnet Street on June 17.

    He was leaving a nightclub with his girlfriend when he was chased by a group of people and was shot as he was trying to get into his vehicle.

    Two other suspects, identified as 23-year-old George Webb and 24-year-old Anthony Sharpe, have been charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder in connection with Sanders' death. Police have not said what role the suspects allegedly played in Sanders' murder.

    It was not immediately clear if Banks has an attorney.
