Gunfire, foot chase across Fairmount Hill

Boston Police report arresting a Roxbury teen on Dana Avenue last night following a foot chase from the scene of a possible armed home invasion around the corner on Washington Street.

Police say Feneli Morales, 18, of Roxbury, faces charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and discharging a gun within 500 feet of a house. Police say officers investigating a possible armed home invasion on Washington Street spotted him and chased him to a yard on Dana, where, police say, they found Morales packing a loaded firearm, duct tape and clothing.

Police flooded the area along Truman Parkway looking for another suspect, one resident reports.

Innocent, etc.

Oh Fudge!

I lived for 5 years until 2009 right off Truman by Fairmount. Honestly, it was always a quiet neighborhood considering it's location. And the Police Academy is right up the street.

There was a series of drug

There was a series of drug busts/crimes up that way several years ago. I don't see any problems when I drive through, but I remember the news reports. It's certainly not River st.

Google wrong on this?

Wouldn't put it past them, I know our 4,000 Washington streets confuse me no end, I can only imagine what they do to Google, but look at the Google map below.

Such a weird street

That's the one by that park, right? That's like Wakefield Ave for 100 feet, then Washington Street for a couple hundred feet, then something else? So weird.

EDIT: The map just loaded. So yeah, that was a pointless post. But still, that street is odd.

Which yard?

Does anyone know which house or which yard? I used to own the house on the corner of Dana and Washington and would like to know.
