Suspect in Custody and Loaded Firearm Recovered During Investigation in Dorchester


At about 7:24 PM on Wednesday March 13, 2019, officers assigned to District B-3 (Mattapan) arrested Hassaun Daily, 27, of Jamaica Plain on firearm related charges after responding to a call for a person with a gun in the area of Lorne Street and Wilbert Circle in Dorchester. During the incident, an adult male victim was approached by a motor vehicle being operated by the suspect. The suspect vehicle pulled along side the victim as he was walking down the street at which time the suspect made statements towards the victim while pointing a firearm at him. Officers searched the area and soon located the suspect motor vehicle parked nearby. When the officers asked the suspect to step out of the vehicle, he put the car in gear and attempted to flee. Additional responding units were able to block the suspect’s path of flight with their vehicles and convince the suspect to comply. Officers then removed the suspect and performed a pat frisk which led to the recovery of a loaded .380 Sig Sauer handgun equipped with a laser scope from inside the vehicle. The suspect was then placed in custody without incident. The suspect will appear in Dorchester District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Failure to Submit to a Police Officer.
