Boston Police report arresting Adonis Alvarez, 18, of Roxbury on gun charges outside graduation for the McKinley School on Warren Avenue yesterday evening.
Police say BPD and School Police officers noticed Alvarez "acting suspiciously" around 7:20 p.m.:
As a result of training received enabling officers to identify characteristics consistent with that of an armed gunman, officers noted that the individual was walking in such a way as if to suggest he may have been in possession of a firearm. As a result of their observations, officers approached the individual to better understand and to further investigate their suspicions and observations. Upon seeing the approaching officers, the individual attempted to flee the area on foot. While running behind the suspect, officers observed the suspect either drop or discard an object that turned out to be a firearm. Upon catching up to and grabbing a hold of the suspect, officers were able to take possession of a second firearm found inside the suspect’s waistband.
UPDATE: A judge set bail at $15,000 today at Alvarez's arraignment on two counts each of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, and carrying a loaded firearm, and a single count each of resisting arrest and receiving stolen property, the Suffolk County Distrtict Attorney's office reports. Should he make bail, he'll have to wear a GPS monitor and abide by a curfew pending the outcome of his case.
