Officers Arrest Three Suspects in Roxbury and Recover Two Loaded Firearms

At about 01:09 AM on Monday, January 28, 2019, officers assigned to District B-2 (Roxbury) responded to a radio call for shots fired in the area of 1210 Walnut Avenue, Roxbury. Upon arrival officers discovered ballistic evidence and shattered glass at the intersection of Walnut Street and Walnut Avenue and learned a short time later that a motor vehicle had been damaged by the gunfire.    

Operations dispatcher broadcasted a description of a black motor vehicle that was observed fleeing the scene towards Dudley Street to Warren Street and then onto Circuit Street. Officers observed a black sedan parked on the right side of Circuit Street and occupied by a female, later identified as Dominique Dockery, 26 of Roxbury. As officers approached the sedan, they observed Dockery to be noticeably nervous and inconsistent with her answers about her whereabouts. At this point officers observed two males approach the motor vehicle and all three gave conflicting statements as to how and why they were at 46 Circuit Street, based on the description of the suspects’ vehicle and the proximity to the shooting, officers conducted a pat frisk of the vehicle and recovered a backpack from the back seat containing one .22 caliber pistol and one .38 revolver.

Dominique Dockery, 26, of Roxbury; Jathaniel Ayala, 23, of Dorchester; and Wynton Meyers, 25, of Brockton will be charged with Unlawful Possession of Firearm, Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Firearm, and Unlawful Possession of Ammunition. They will all be arraigned in Roxbury District Court.
