One Less Gun: At about 2:20 AM on Monday, May 27, 2019, officers assigned to District B-2 (Roxbury) made three onsite arrests and recovered a firearm in the area of 61 Degautier Way in Roxbury. Officers responded to a radio call for shots fired in the area of the 10 Degautier Way in Roxbury, while en route, officers observed a motor vehicle traveling with no headlights and operating at an accelerated rate of speed. Officers conducted a traffic stop for the infractions. While speaking with the operator, who was immediately confrontational with officers, officers observed the front passenger to be bleeding from an injury on his hand. The front passenger stated he fell while running away from the gunshots being fired. Officers spoke to the rear passenger, who was nearly out of breath, and made the determination to remove the occupants based off of the occupants’ actions and the nearby call for shots fired.
With the assistance of a BPD K-9, officers recovered a Glock 19, semi-automatic firearm, in the full lock back position, within the spare tire compartment of the vehicle’s trunk.
