Man who was wanted for shooting four in Newmarket Square last month arrested in Roslindale parking lot

Boston Police report a man wanted for shooting four men in Newmarket Square early on Dec. 9 was arrested yesterday morning outside the Stop & Shop on American Legion Highway in Roslindale - after police first relieved him of the loaded gun they say he was packing.

Police say Shawquan Jackson, 28, of Dorchester shot four men shortly after midnight in the area of Mass. Ave. and Proctor Street, where first responders found one victim in a car with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries. Police later found three more men with less serious injuries on Boston Street - on the other side of the South Bay Mall.

Police say fugitive-unit officers had tracked Jackson yesterday to the Stop & Shop parking lot, where they say he had driven with a revoked license and with "a loaded black and gray Smith & Wesson SD9 VE firearm" that had been stolen in Clayton County, Georgia in 2016.

Police say they are still figuring out exactly what to charge Jackson with in connection with the four shootings, but say that they did charge him with driving with a revoked license, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, unlawfully carrying a loaded firearm, unlawful possession of a large-capacity feeding device and receiving stolen property based on what they observed in Roslindale.

Innocent, etc.
