Two teens charged with double shooting outside TechBoston Academy in Dorchester
Boston Police report arresting teens from Dorchester and Lynn on charges they shot a teacher and a student outside TechBoston Academy around 5:45 p.m. on March 15.
Police report that officers arrested a 17-year-old from Lynn who at first ran, possibly because he had "a loaded 9mm Glock 19 handgun equipped with a laser sight" on him at the time. Armed with a search warrant, officers found "a .22 caliber handgun equipped with a laser sight" at his home, police say.
Around 1:30 p.m. today, a 16-year-old from Dorchester surrendered himself to BPD gang-unit officers, police say.
Police say that after the shooting, the two teens fled on a single scooter. Both victims are expected to survive.

So, Adam, why don't you
So, Adam, why don't you identify teens who shoot people?
By law, police have to withhold the names of minors charged with most offenses (murder is one of the few crimes for which this does not apply). I didn't withhold the names, I don't have them. You know, I provided a link to the BPD account (click on the word "report"), you could check that if you want to see if the names are supplied (hint: They aren't).
If you don't like this, you should write a protest letter to your state legislators.
Say what you will about the police, gang units are important.
