One Less Gun: Officers Recover Two Firearms in Two Separate Incidents

S&W380BodyGuard-Geneva&Normandy.JPG

INCIDENT #1: At about 7:42 PM on Thursday, September 14, 2017, members of the Youth Violence Strike Force on-sited an arrest in the area of Geneva Avenue and Normandy Street in District B-2 (Roxbury). While on patrol in the area, officers observed a vehicle operating with a broken tail light. Officers conducted a stop of the vehicle at the above address and were informed by the operator that he was not licensed to drive. Officers requested the operator exit the vehicle, and once he had done so, officers observed the handle of a firearm in plain view protruding from a pocket located in front of the driver’s seat. Officers recovered a loaded Smith & Wesson .380 Bodyguard with obliterated serial number from the vehicle. Officers arrested the operator, identified as 27-year-old Antwoun J. Ellis of Dorchester, and charged him with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Unlawfully Carrying a Loaded Firearm, Possession of a Firearm with Obliterated Serial Number, Armed Career Criminal Level I, Operating a Motor Vehicle after License Suspension, and cited for the Defective Brake Light.

A pat frisk of the suspect revealed a loaded Iver Johnson .32 caliber revolver with obliterated serial number in a mesh belt in his waistband. Officers arrested 67-year-old Clinton Satterfield of Dorchester and charged him with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Unlawfully Carrying a Loaded Firearm, and Possession of a Firearm with Obliterated Serial Number.

One Less Gun: Officers Arrest Two Suspects, Recover Firearm after Armed Robbery and Shooting in Mattapan

Hi-Point9mm-BHA-Almont.JPG

At about 12:00 AM on Friday, September 15, 2017, officers from District B-3 (Mattapan) responded to a radio call for shots fired in the area of Blue Hill Ave and Almont Street. Upon arrival, officers located a female victim suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The officers were informed that she had been robbed and shot by two males who fled on foot toward Mattapan Square. The victim was transported to Boston Medical Center by EMS.

Meanwhile, officers on scene were informed that the same suspects had been witnessed committing the shooting and an earlier robbery in the area of Blue Hill Ave and Woolson Street a short time before the shooting. Officers received a detailed description and direction of flight. Officers canvassed the area and located two males fitting that description in the area of River Street and Edgewater Drive. Upon approaching the suspects, one male fled while the other attempted to hide in a parked vehicle. Officers removed 21-year-old Wilkenson Charles of Hyde Park from the parked vehicle and recovered an unloaded Hi-Point C9 9mm pistol in his possession. Officers stopped 30-year-old Phillipe Walnes of Malden after a brief foot pursuit and violent struggle during which Walnes kicked the officers. When officers were able to apprehend Walnes, they discovered several items identified as stolen property in his possession. Both Charles and Walnes were identified as the suspects involved in the shooting and robbery. Officers arrested both suspects and charged them with Armed Assault with Intent to Murder, Discharging a Firearm within 500 ft. of a Dwelling, Armed Robbery, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Assault and Battery by Means of a Dangerous Weapon, and Unlawfully Carrying a Loaded Firearm. Walnes was additionally charged with Assault and Battery by Means of a Dangerous Weapon on a Police Officer (Shod Foot).

UPDATE: Suspect Charged in Death Investigation in the Area of 11 Santuit Street, Dorchester

 

At about 10:22 PM on Sunday, September 10, 2017, officers from District C-11 (Dorchester) responded to a radio call for shots fired in the area of 11 Santuit Street.

Upon arrival, officers observed an adult female suffering from apparent gunshot wounds inside the residence. The female was pronounced deceased at the scene. The female victim has since been identified as 24-year-old Michaela Gingras of Manchester, NH. 

Today, Friday September 15, 2017,  State Police Colonel Richard D. McKeon, Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans, and Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley announced that warrants charging a Dorchester man with the homicides of Scott M. Stevens, Jr., and Michaela Gingras have been lodged at the Suffolk County Jail, where he is currently held without bail in unrelated cases.

The warrants, obtained late last night, charge LANCE HOLLOMAN (D.O.B. 1/12/87) with murder, armed assault with intent to murder, and other offenses for allegedly shooting Stevens, 32, and a 54-year-old relative as they rode their motorcycles southbound on Route 93 near the Neponset Avenue exit at about 5:00 Sunday evening. Stevens, a resident of East Taunton, died of his injuries at Boston Medical Center on Wednesday; his relative is expected to survive.

The warrants also charge Holloman with murder for Gingras’ fatal shooting. The 24-year-old resident of Manchester, New Hampshire, was found with fatal gunshot injuries several hours later inside a residence on Santuit Street in Dorchester. She was pronounced dead at the scene late Sunday night.

The charges reflect around-the clock investigation by and communication between the Boston Police Homicide Unit, which responded to Santuit Street, and the Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit, which has jurisdiction over death investigations on State roadways within the City of Boston. Commissioner Evans, Colonel McKeon, and District Attorney Conley stressed that the investigation into both incidents remains very active, and anyone with information on either one is urged to share it with Boston Police at 617-343-4470 or State Police at 617-727-8817.

Holloman was arrested by Franklin Police on three outstanding warrants following a motor vehicle collision early Monday morning. One of the warrants charged unlawful possession of a firearm for a May 31 incident in which he allegedly directed another person to throw a loaded handgun from a vehicle while fleeing a traffic stop; Holloman evaded police but a warrant issued for his arrest.

Holloman was arraigned Monday afternoon in Dorchester Municipal Court, where Judge James Coffey imposed $150,000 cash bail on the gun case, revoked Holloman’s bail for 60 days on an unrelated pending case charging assault and battery and animal cruelty, and imposed an additional $500 bail on an unrelated pending case charging operation of a motor vehicle with a suspended license. Holloman had earlier failed to appear in court on both these latter cases, triggering default warrants in both.

Because he is held on high bail in one case and his bail is revoked in another, Holloman will be brought into court for arraignment on the murder and attempted murder charges on a future date that has not yet been scheduled.

The Boston Police Department is actively reviewing the facts and circumstances surrounding this incident. Anyone with information relative to the investigation is strongly urged to contact Boston Police Homicide Detectives at (617) 343-4470.

Community members wishing to assist this investigation anonymously can do so by calling the CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1 (800) 494-TIPS or by texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463).
