Boston Police report arresting three men, each armed with a loaded gun, following a traffic stop on Dudley Street early this morning.
Police say officers had pulled over a car on Dudley Street near Magazine Street and Blue Hill Avenue for a traffic infraction around 2:28 a.m. and learned that the driver, Timmy Hunt, 28, of Randolph, had a suspended license.
When the officers explained the situation to the operator, he became argumentative and suddenly reached down towards his feet and grabbed a handgun from the floor of the vehicle. A violent struggle then ensued as numerous officers responded to provide back up. Officers were eventually able to gain control of both the firearm and the suspect at which time he was placed in custody. The firearm was later determined to be a fully loaded .45 caliber Glock 30S handgun with a round in the chamber. Officers then removed the two passengers from the vehicle, Tamari Tubbs, 21, of Dorchester and Daquan Dooley, 29, of Quincy, who were both pat frisked and found to be in possession of loaded firearms. Officers safely recovered a loaded .357 caliber Glock 33 handgun from Tubbs and a loaded .40 caliber Springfield Armory XDM handgun from Dooley.
All three were charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and carrying a loaded firearm, police say.
