While responding to the above radio call for a person shot, officers were monitoring additional responding units involved in a motor vehicle pursuit and subsequent foot chase, in the area of Academy Rd. and Dimock St resulting from the above shooting incident. Officers were advised of a description of a suspect seen running from the suspect motor vehicle, towards 40 Dimock St. Officers began to set up a perimeter in the rear of 40 Dimock St, near Notre Dame St. While in this area, officers observed a black male matching the suspect description exit from a vacant lot across from 18 Notre Dame St, jogging, sweating, and breathing heavy, gasping for air. Officers began to follow the individual as he walked down Notre Dame St, towards Bragdon St, where officers were assisted by an additional unit, who was able to stop the individual and conduct a threshold inquiry.
