BPD Arrests Suspect in Connection to April 2017 Non-Fatal Shooting

After a lengthy fugitive investigation, members of the BPD Fugitive Apprehension Unit, the Youth Violence Strike Force, and the US Marshals HIDTA Task Force were able to track wanted shooting suspect 19-year-old Tynigel Belgrave of Dorchester to New York where he was arrested this morning, Wednesday, July 12, 2017, by the US Marshals NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force in the area of 880 Madison Street, Brooklyn, NY.
Belgrave had an active and outstanding warrant out of Dorchester District Court for Assault with Intent to Murder and several firearm related charges stemming from a non-fatal shooting that occurred on April 11, 2017 in the area of 20 Vesta Road, Dorchester. Belgrave had been on the run for several months since the incident, initially fleeing from Boston to Connecticut, then ultimately traveling to New York City. Belgrave will be arraigned as a Fugitive from Justice in Brooklyn and await extradition back to Boston by the BPD Fugitive Apprehension Unit.
“Despite the lack of cooperation from the victim, who refused to even identify himself to officers in this incident, the detectives and specialized units were able to piece together facts and circumstances leading to the identification and apprehension of the suspect,” said Police Commissioner William Evans. “It was the great teamwork and effort from the Fugitive Unit, YVSF, District B-3 detectives, and the US Marshals Service, as well as assistance from the community, that allowed us to track down and apprehend this violent criminal.”
