Boston Police report drug officers conducting an investigation heard a report of shots fired near Cabot Street around 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday:
A description of the shooter was also broadcast, and a short time later, DCU officers observed a suspect fitting the description riding a bicycle nearby [at Parker Street and Annunciation Road]. Without exiting their cruiser, the officers attempted to engage the individual, who began to frantically look in all directions as if searching for an escape route. So focused on finding a way to avoid the officers was the suspect, that he rode his bike directly into the rear passenger’s side of the officers’ cruiser.
Due to the individual’s nervous demeanor, frantic actions, vicinity to the shots fired call, and physical description, the officers frisked the suspect for weapons. Officers detected a firearm in the suspect’s back pants pocket and recovered a loaded black Titan .25 caliber handgun.
Evan Burton, 33, of Dorchester, was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm and being an armed career criminal.
