Police: Teen caught with loaded gun on Hyde Park street that just had shooting

Boston Police report arresting Shawn Antony Watt, 17, on charges of illegal possession of a loaded gun Tuesday afternoon.

Police say a lieutenant walking the area of River Street and Wood Avenue around 12:30 p.m. - as part of a stepped up presence following a shooting on Saturday - saw four men arguing.

One pair of suspects suddenly turned and ran toward Wood Avenue, the other two followed.

The lieutenant detective observed one of the males grabbing at his waistband and conducted a field stop. During a pat frisk, one of the males was found to have a loaded firearm on his person.

Innocent, etc.

"Your honor, the poor innocent child was simply walking down the street, scratching his [email protected], minding his own business - that evil scary cop had no right to frisk him! Racism, profiling, illegal search, let him go, waaaaah!"

that Massachusetts has some of the strictest gun laws in the Nation. It makes me feel so safe living here knowing that possession of firearms are restricted.
