The Globe reports police identified the man killed in a shootout with police yesterday as Darryl Dookhran, 20, who was last in the news for carrying a loaded firearm in his backpack onto the campus of Mass. Bay Community College in Wellesley in 2011.
Boston Police say Dookhran opened fire on members of the Youth Violence Strike Force when they approached him and another man to talk to them around 1 p.m. yesterday at Geneva Avenue and Westville Street. The officers, one shot in the arm, returned fire, mortally wounding Dookhran.
In April of last year, he was found guilty on the Mass. Bay charges and sentenced to 2 1/2 years behind bars. Before his trial, his past teachers in BPS schools described him as more of a class clown than a menace to society.
