Boston Police report that two men who had been kicked out of Icon, 100 Warrenton St., early this morning were arrested after witnesses spotted them getting a gun out of a nearby parked car.
Icon is next door to, and owned by the same company as Venu, out of which Jassy Correia walked last weekend.
According to police, Icon security guards escorted Israel Chery, 24, of Somerville and Jerome Belle, 24, of Randolph, out of the club shortly after 1 a.m. after they got into an argument inside the club with a group of other patrons.
Once the two were outside of the club, Jerome Belle was observed retrieving a handgun from a nearby parked motor vehicle and handing it to Israel Chery as the two then walked together towards Stuart Street. Officers soon located and stopped Israel Chery at the corner of Warrenton Street and Stuart Street at which time a violent struggle ensued. The suspect was eventually placed in custody with the assistance of numerous responding officers at which time a loaded .40 caliber Glock 23 Gen 4 handgun was recovered from the suspect’s right jacket pocket. Officers continued to search the area and soon located the second suspect, Jerome Belle, in a parked motor vehicle where he was placed in custody without incident.
Both were charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and possession of a large-capacity feeding device, police say.
In 2017, Paga, Inc., which owns the two clubs, agreed to shut Icon for a month and Venu for two weeks over a series of incidents mainly involving underage drinkers, including one in which an underage Tufts freshman fell to his death from a nearby garage after spending the night at Icon.
