One Less Gun: Officers in District B-2 Arrest One Suspect Armed with Loaded Firearm

At about 9:57 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27, 2018, officers from District B-2 (Roxbury) while on patrol, responded to a call for shots fired in the area of Warren Street and Maywood Street. Officers arrived on scene and exited their motor vehicle in front of 72 Maywood Street. While on foot, officers observed a male walking down the driveway of 78 Maywood Street. Officers shined a flashlight on the male subject and immediately noticed what appeared to be the brown handle of a firearm sticking out of the male’s right front pocket. 

Officers conducted a pat frisk and located a loaded Taurus .22 caliber firearm in the suspect’s right front pocket. Officers were also able to locate one unspent round of ammunition on the ground.

Officers arrested Irvin Collymore, 36, of Roxbury and charged him with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Firearm Discharged within 500ft of a Dwelling.  Collymore will be arraigned in Roxbury District Court.
