Roxbury man charged with shooting gun in the South End
Boston Police report officers responding to a report of gunfire at 96 W. Newton St. around 7:20 p.m. yesterday quickly found a guy not far away who matched witnesses' description of the shooter.
Officers stopped the male and while speaking with him, a 9mm ammunition casing fell from his pocket. Simultaneously, officers canvassing the area for discarded evidence observed a loaded black 9mm Ruger P95DAO with a high capacity feeding device in a gap between a nearby building and porch.
Police initially charged Isaac Almedarez, 19, with unlawful possession of ammunition and with trespassing - seems the BHA had already given him a written notice to stay away from the property. But then he spilled the beans about firing a gun during booking and was additionally charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of a large-capacity feeding device and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, police say.

Interesting and familiar story
Sounds amazingly like this one from 2014:
Why you picking on Roxbury?
The police report has three people arrested. They are from Roxbury, JP, and Dedham. Of the three the guy from Dedham had 3 guns. That would seem like the most "news" worthy of the choices. Thanks.
Because he's the only one who actually fired a gun
Which seems a bit more serious than simply possessing it.
