At about 2:44 AM on Monday, January 27, 2014, officers from District B-3 (Mattapan) responded to a call for shots fired in the area of 92 Rosewood Street. Upon arrival, two gunshot victims were located, 25-year-old male Clarence McGregor of Dorchester and 28-year-old female Teasia Montgomery of Medford. Both victims were later pronounced deceased.
BPD Homicide detectives have since identified three suspects responsible for the double murder: 25-year-old Tony Evans of Mattapan, 26-year-old Steven Stephen of Dorchester, and 29-year-old Lorenzo Jones of Boston.
After extensive investigation, Boston Police Detectives tracked Tony Evans to the area of Charlotte, NC, where he had fled in an attempt to elude capture in Boston. On Friday, March 31, 2016, members of the U.S. Marshals Violent Offender Task Force located and arrested Evans at a home in the area of Cheviott Hill Lane in Charlotte. Evans will be brought back to Boston to answer to two counts of Murder and one count of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm (3rd Offense).
On Friday, May 6, 2016, members of the US Marshals Regional Task Force arrested Lorenzo Jones in the area of 3077 Westwood Drive in Augusta, Georgia after officers from the BPD Fugitive Unit forwarded a lead based on intelligence gathered in Boston. Jones’ arrest was the culmination of a month-long, widespread investigation that included conducting warrant service attempts in Boston and several other cities and three separate states. Jones is held on charges of Murder and Possession of a Firearm in the Richmond County Jail in Augusta, GA while he awaits a rendition hearing.
Steven Stephen, already incarcerated in Massachusetts on an unrelated matter, will also answer to the charges of two counts of Murder and one count of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm (3rd Offense).
“This was an extremely in-depth and lengthy investigation,” said Police Commissioner William Evans. “Over the course of two years, my detectives remained focused on identifying and building a solid case against all three suspects involved in this horrific double homicide. Thanks to the assistance of our law enforcement partners, we were able to arrest the three people responsible, and we hope this brings some amount of comfort to the families of the victims.”
