One Less Gun: BPD Officers Arrest Suspect After Recovering Loaded Firearm During Investigation in Dorchester


At about 12:00 AM on Sunday August 26, 2018, officers assigned to the Youth Violence Strike Force arrested Otis Kimbrough, 50, of Dorchester, on firearm related charges during an investigation in the area of 799 Blue Hill Avenue in Dorchester. The officers were in the area after responding to a call for a male suspect who had been observed placing a firearm in the trunk of a vehicle.
