Boston Police report arresting three people, two on gun charges, after a traffic stop on Brookline Avenue near Kilmarnock Street in the Fenway early Sunday morning.
Police say gang-unit officers pulled Dashawn Harris, 28, of Roxbury over around 12:05 a.m. for an unspecified infraction and discovered he did not have a valid license but did have a warrant out of Peabody court on various motor-vehicle offenses.
Officers removed the operator and placed him in custody without incident. Officers then removed the passengers and recovered a loaded .22 caliber American Tactile "Firefly" handgun from inside the vehicle. Officers then arrested the two parties who were in close proximity to the weapon, later identified as Brian Elliot, 23, and Jadia Nunn, both of Manchester, New Hampshire.
Elliot and Nunn were charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition. Harris was detained on the Peabody warrant, police say.
