Male Arrested for Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Firearm Fourth Offense Following Shots Fired in Roxbury

At about 1:30 AM on Sunday, June 2, 2019, officers assigned to District B-2 (Roxbury) made an onsite arrest and recovered a loaded firearm in the area of 15 Dalkeith Street in Roxbury. Officers responded to a radio call for shots fired in the area of 21 Balfour Street. On arrival, officers observed a male standing across the street from where the shots were fired. The male appeared to be extremely nervous, breathing heavy and continually looking over his shoulder toward a motor vehicle parked on Dalkeith Street, a short distance away from the male and the shots fired incident. Officers continued their dialogue with the male who stated that he did not live in the area and that his car was parked on Dalkeith Street. Officers approached the motor vehicle and upon opening the passenger’s side door, immediately located a Glock 27 firearm loaded with eight rounds of live ammunition resting underneath the passenger’s seat. The suspect was placed under arrest. Additionally, officers recovered another firearm, a Smith and Wesson model 5906 loaded with ten rounds of live ammunition, from the rear middle seat of the motor vehicle. 

Officers arrested Darrel Barboza, 36-years-old, of Allston. Barboza is expected to be arraigned in Roxbury District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm Fourth Offense, two counts of Unlawful Possession of a Loaded Firearm Fourth Offense, and Unlawful Possession of Ammunition Subsequent Offense.
