Boston Police report arresting a Mattapan man they say pointed a gun at a clerk at Symphony Market, 291 Huntington Ave., yesterday afternoon after he "became agitated that the smoke shop portion of the store was currently closed."
According to police:
When the suspect was asked to leave, he made verbal threats to shoot the victim. Shortly after the suspect left the store, the victim observed the suspect driving by the storefront in a white SUV at which time the suspect stopped the vehicle and pointed a silver revolver at the victim. The suspect then fled the area.
Detectives quickly tracked Dayne Taylor, 39, down to Itasca Street in Mattapan, where they arrested him on a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon, police say, adding they did not recover a weapon from his vehicle.
