BPD Officers Arrest Fleeing Suspect Armed with Large Capacity Firearm in Dorchester


ONE LESS GUN: At about 7:15 PM on Wednesday January 9, 2019, officers assigned to the Youth Violence Strike Force made an onsite firearm arrest during an investigation in the area of Columbia Road and Geneva Avenue in Dorchester. As the officers approached to speak with a group of males, one of the individuals, later identified as Davonne Manor, 24, of Roxbury, suddenly took of running while clutching at the right side of the waistband of his pants. Officers pursued the suspect and placed him in custody after a brief struggle at which time they were able to safely recover a 9mm Glock 19 with an extended magazine loaded with 31 rounds of ammunition. The suspect will appear in Dorchester District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Carrying a Loaded Firearm and Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device and Resisting Arrest.
