UPDATE: Rice held in lieu of a total of $157,500 bail on charges related to the Dec. 20 shooting and his arrest; Clay held in lieu of $25,000 bail, but had his bail on a Plymouth County matter revoked, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Police say Daiquan Rice, 23, of Roxbury and his father, Roderick Clay, 43, of Dorchester, fired on two men sitting in a car at Parker and Gurney streets around 5 p.m. Both victims were taken to local hospitals with non-fatal injuries.
The pair were picked up by detectives and gang-unit officers yesterday afternoon; both were charged with armed assault to murder, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, unlawfully carrying a loaded firearm and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, police say. Dad faces higher potential penalties because he has three prior gun and drug convictions. Police add:
During the arrest of Rice, officers recovered a loaded Browning CZ-83 .380 caliber firearm that Rice discarded as he attempted to flee from officers in the area of 3091 Washington Street, Roxbury. ... Prior to transport, officers also recovered a medium bag of what appeared to be crack cocaine and a large quantity of money on Rice’s person; therefore, Rice is further charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B Drugs.
Police say that after picking them up, detectives figured out that Rice also fit the description of the shooter in two other incidents: A double shooting at 30 Annunciation Rd around 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 24 and a single shooting at 260 Ruggles St. near Annunciation Road around 5:40 p.m. on Dec. 7.
All three victims suffered non-fatal injuries, police say.
