Boston Police report offices responding to several 911 calls about a guy with a gun at 345 Harrison Ave. arrested a man who was sitting in the lobby of the apartment building there last night, with a loaded gun in his waistband, who allegedly told them he didn't need a license to wander around town with a gun because he was part of "a military police unit."
Despite his alleged MP role, Carirngton also told the officers he was no longer in the military and that he would have shown them his discharge papers, which he claimed were in his back pocket, except that on arrival they had handcuffed him for officer safety while they removed the unholstered Hi-Point 9-mm handgun loaded with ten rounds. Police say Carrington did volunteer to the officers as they approached that he had a gun and a license - although, unlike his discharge papers, not on him.
Police say Carrington was also packing a second magazine with nine rounds.
The officers kept him in handcuffs after arresting him on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and use of body armor in the commission of a felony.
