ONE LESS GUN: At about 9:05 PM, on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, members of the Youth Violence Strike Force made an onsite arrest and recovered a loaded firearm in the area of 16 Akron Street in Roxbury. While on patrol, officers observed a group of males trespassing in the area. As officers attempted to approach the males, all, but one, immediately began running away from the officers. Officers gave chase but were unable to catch up to the males. Officers spoke to the male who remained on scene. Officers searched the immediate area surrounding the male and were able to locate a loaded SCCY CPX-9mm semi-automatic firearm and multiple rounds of live ammunition. The 17-year-old male juvenile of Dorchester was placed under arrest and charged with Delinquent to wit: Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Delinquent to wit: Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, and Trespassing. The suspect is expected to be arraigned in Roxbury District Court.
