PEDESTRIAN STRUCK AND KILLED IN JAMAICA PLAINLast evening at approximately 6:47, officers responded to a radio call for a motor vehicle accident with injuries at 3050 Washington Street in Jamaica Plain. Officers then learned that a pedestrian was struck by a Blue Grand AM being operated by Teddy Smith, 26, Canton. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced. The victim has been identified as Ricky Jones, 39, of Boston. Boston Police are seeking the following charges against Teddy Smith: Operating after suspension, Motor Vehicle homicide by reckless operation and speeding. BOSTON POLICE ARREST SUSPECT RESPONSIBLE FOR RECENT SHOOTING At approximately 2:50pm, Thursday, June 26, 2008, an officer responded to a radio call for a person shot at 214 Harvard St. Upon arrival the officer observed a black male teenager, who appeared to be suffering from a gunshot wound to the left side of his back. Victim was transported to Boston Medical Center by EMS and was treated for a non-life threatening wound. While on-scene it was learned that the incident occurred at the intersection of Nightingale and Wales St. Officers located two spent shell casings at this intersection. Based on the ongoing investigation into the shooting, detectives developed information that identified Gevaughn Clark, 21, of Dorchester as the suspect. Information received indicated that the victim was walking with two others on Nightingale St. when the suspect pulled up at the corner of Nightingale St./ Wales St. and exited his motor vehicle. Shots were fired and the victim was struck in the back while trying to flee. Community members stated that suspect (Clark) then got back into his motor vehicle and was attempting to put an item back inside his pants. The victim fled and collapsed in front of 214 Harvard St. That evening while detectives were investigating the shooting, additional officers reported that the suspect arrived at Carney Hospital and had checked himself in for a gunshot wound to the right side of his hip that had exited the front of his right leg. That bullet was recovered from the floor of the driver’s side front seat of above motor vehicle. Gevaughn Clark had stated that he got shot at the corner of Wales St. and Nightingale St. but stated he was walking to his car not driving. The account contradicts what witnesses say transpired. Clark’s wound is believed to be self-inflicted. Based on further investigative details developed, officers applied for and were granted an arrest warrant for Gevaughn Clark. On July 7, 2008 at approximately 6:09pm, officers from the Youth Violence Strike Force arrested Clark on a warrant charging him with three counts of Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon, Poss. Firearm, Poss. Ammunition, Carrying a Loaded Firearm. TRAFFIC STOP LEADS TO FIREARM ARREST About 1:15 AM, on Tuesday, July 8, 2008, Officers from the Youth Violence Strike Force were on directed patrol of the Columbia Rd. / Washington St. / Morse St. area of Dorchester. Officers, who were operating an unmarked police cruiser, were traveling on Brinsley St. towards Ronald St. As Officers reached Ronald St., they observed a Gray Dodge Durango traveling on Ronald St. from Morse St. Both vehicles reached the intersection of Ronald St. and Brinsley St. at virtually the same time, so the officers stopped to allow the Durango to proceed. However, the operator of the Durango flashed his high beams numerous times in attempts to get the officers to go in front. After a brief stand still, the Durango made a left turn onto Brinsley St. without using its directional. Due to this violation of the auto laws, officers activated the cruiser's emergency lights and sirens and conducted a traffic stop at 138 Washington St. Officers exited their cruiser with their badges clearly displayed on the outermost garments and approached the motor vehicle. The motor vehicle appeared to contain three total occupants. As one officer was speaking to the operator of the vehicle, a second officer observed a black male (later identified as the suspect) suddenly appear from behind the driver's seat by quickly popping his head up. The officer immediately asked the operator to roll the rear passenger window down and observed the suspect sweating profusely. The officer, having made arrests in the past where suspects have attempted to hide contraband out of the sight of police and fearing that the suspect had just done so, asked the suspect to exit the vehicle. As soon as the rear door was opened and the suspect was out of the vehicle, the officer could clearly observe a firearm partially under the driver's seat, in plain view, from where the suspect had just appeared. On making this observation, the officer calmly asked the other officer to assist him at the driver's side of the vehicle. Once that officer arrived at the driver's side of the vehicle, officer alerted the second officer to his discovery by stating, "Gun!" and both officers placed the suspect into custody without further incident. Upon hearing the officer state, "Gun!" the suspect immediately stated, "That's not mine." The suspect was unable to produce a license to carry a firearm on demand. Officers arrested Dennis Jones, 20, of Dorchester was Unlawful Possession of Firearm, Firearm with Altered Serial Numbers, and Unlawful Possession of Ammunition.
