Roxbury man charged for quadruple shooting at house party

Boston Police report arresting Anthony Sheffield, 30, for the gunfire that sent four men to the hospital - three in critical condition - early Saturday.

Police say officers nabbed Sheffield not long after the shootings, initially just for illegal possession of the loaded 9mm Glock 19 handgun they say he had as he ran from the scene.

But analysis of fingerprints and the bullets and the gun linked him to the shootings shortly after midnight and he now faces arraignment Monday on on three counts of armed assault with intent to murder in addition to unlawful possession of a firearm (second and subsequent offense), unlawful possession of ammunition and carrying a loaded firearm.

Innocent, etc.

What’s funny though is that

What’s funny though is that after this incident mayor Walsh starts talking up the need for gun control again and if you read this article the perp was arrested for illegal possession of a firearm. Gun control argument is completely irrelevant to the steady supply of felons and unregistered firearms in the streets of this city.

Do we ever hear about shootings like this by licensed firearm operators?

Nothing unusual about that,

Nothing unusual about that, stupid as it is.

Nowadays nearly every time someone breaks the law in a manner that gets publicity, politicians are talking about how we need new laws... to deal with the person who broke already-existing laws.
