Early this morning around 12:27AM, officers from District B-2 (Roxbury) responded to a call for a loud party in the area of 24 Lawn St. in Roxbury. On arrival, officers observed a loud and boisterous crowd of about 50 college age students standing in the driveway of 20 Lawn Street holding beer cans and red plastic cups containing alcohol.
