      Police make second arrest in North Providence killing

      Hernandez was charged in connection with the killing of 26-year-old Richard Catalano.

      Police have charged with 24-year-old Dari Garcia, of Providence, with murder, assault with a deadly weapon, burglary and other charges.

      Catalano's girlfriend told NBC 10 that she thought the shooting was over a pair of sneakers.

      A friend of Catalano told NBC 10 that after returning home from the Sneaker XPO in Providence on Aug. 17, Catalano posted a picture of a pile of money on a public Facebook page. The picture was posted the same night police said Garcia broke into Catalano's home with a gun.

      Catalano's mother was shot in the jaw and shoulder.

      Garcia has an extensive criminal history. He was shot in the abdomen by Providence police during an altercation in February.
