Boston Police reports arresting two men after they apparently tried to gun down a couple of other guys on Halleck Street on Mission Hill around 6 p.m. on Thursday.
On arrival, officers spoke to witnesses in the area who stated the gunshots had come from the area of Station Street. Further, witnesses stated the two suspects exited a dark sedan and began shooting at two unknown male victims who were walking on Halleck Street before returning to their vehicle and fleeing the area. Officers searched the area and located ballistic evidence on Station Street, but were unable to locate the suspects or any victims.
Officers continued to canvass the area when they observed a black sedan, matching the description of the vehicle the suspects were operating, exit a parking lot on Gurney Street approximately two blocks from where the ballistic evidence was located. Officers activated their emergency equipment and initiated a traffic stop in the area of Smith Street and Parker Street in Roxbury. Officers removed the operator and the passenger from the vehicle and subsequently located a firearm under the passenger’s seat.
Dominick Whitlow Douglas, 28, the driver, and Tevin Abercrombie, 25, were charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm on a public way and possession of a firearm with an altered or defaced serial number, police say.
