Officers Arrest One Male with a Loaded Gun in Dorchester


At about 2:30 PM, on Monday, August, 19, 2019, officers assigned to District B-3 (Mattapan), made an on-site firearm arrest in the area of 217 Columbia Road in Dorchester.

While on patrol in the area of Powellton Road and Columbia Road, officers observed an individual, later identified as Daquam Baskin-King, 19, of Boston, riding a City of Boston Blue Bike, matching the description of a suspect involved in a prior incident.

Due to the fact that the individual matched the description of the suspect and was wearing the same clothing while operating a City of Boston Blue Bike, officers performed a threshold inquiry.  During the threshold inquiry, followed by a pat frisk, a loaded Raven Model MP-25 firearm was recovered from Baskin-King.

Officers placed Daquam Baskin-King under arrest and charged him with Carrying a Loaded Firearm without a License.  He will be arraigned in Dorchester District Court.
