A 15 year old from West Warwick was shot dead Saturday night and Providence Police are investigating. Gervonte Tilson, going into 10th grade with a child on the way, found himself killed on Wallace street in the Silver Lake section of Providence. Tilson had a criminal record and spent time at the training school, where he made friends in Providence. Something went sideways Saturday night as police were called after a single gunshot was heard and Tilson was found dead on the scene in a driveway. Juan after Dark was on the scene of the shooting Monday night as friends of the teen gathered to smoke pot, drink and several wore ski-masks.
