Updated 6:30 p.m. with additional info from Boston Police.
Stanley Staco reports somebody in a white Jaguar fired some rounds at another car outside 274 Tremont St. around 3 a.m. Around 4:30 a.m., somebody caught up with the car on Washington Street in Roxbury, right in front of the B-2 police station, and opened fire, hitting its three occupants.
Boston Police report officers coming out of the station parking lot heard the gunshots and saw a gray car speeding away from the side of the Jaguar.
Officers say the three wounded men were taken to local hospitals and are expected to recover.
As officers were pursuing the suspect's gray motor vehicle, officers observed the suspect crash into a trash receptacle and a utility pole after losing control of his vehicle in the area of Washington Street & Walnut Park. With his car stopped, the suspect quickly exited his car in an effort to flee the area on foot. While running behind the suspect, officers observed the suspect reach into his waist area, pull out what appeared to be a firearm and toss it to the ground. Upon seeing the firearm, officers promptly discontinued their foot pursuit in order to seize and secure the firearm.
A short time later, responding officers were able to locate the suspect who was found running in the area of 30 Walnut Park.
Eric Davis, 28, of Dorchester, was charged with assault with intent to murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm on a public way, resisting arrest and driving to endanger. Davis is not a stranger to Boston Police.
