Boston Police report arresting a Dorchester man on gun charges after gunfire in the area of Walk Hill and Canterbury streets in Roslindale yesterday afternoon.
Nobody was hit; the Haley School about a block away sent robo-messages to parents about the gunfire.
Police say officers looking for two men spotted speeding away on a scooter after the 4 p.m. gunfire spotted a pair of suspects on a scooter in the area of Ferndale and Norfolk streets in Dorchester.
The driver refused to stop for police, but then he crashed into a parked car at Talbot Avenue and Bernard Street, about a half mile away, police say.
The passenger, later identified as Eryne Pierre, 20 of Dorchester, jumped off of the scooter and fled on foot. Officers observed the suspect running with a firearm in his right hand and then observed him throw the firearm over a fence on Kerwin Street.
Officers apprehended the suspect and recovered the firearm which was determined to be a loaded Glock 43 with one round in the chamber and five rounds in the magazine. The driver of the scooter was able to make his escape.
Pierre was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.
