Man, two teens walked through Mandela Homes with loaded guns, threatening at least one person, police say

Boston Police report arresting a 20-year-old and two teens Monday morning on various gun charges after they allegedly used one of their weapons to threaten somebody.

Police say that shortly before 8:25 a.m. on Winsor Street:

An adult male victim had been approached by three male suspects as he was walking in the area towards Tremont Street. After a brief verbal exchange, one of the suspects, later identified as a 16-year-old male from Roxbury, pulled out a firearm and threatened the victim. The three suspects then fled the area on foot.

Officers quickly found the three - Jamuan Coakley-Thomason, 20, of Roxbury, the 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, and detained all three after brief foot chases that police won.

Officers then performed pat frisks of the three suspects, leading to the recovery of a loaded 9mm Ruger handgun from the 16-year-old male suspect, as well as a loaded 9mm Springfield Armory XD9 handgun equipped with a laser sight from the second suspect, later identified as a 17-year-old male from Roxbury, and a loaded 9mm Glock 19 handgun from the third suspect, later identified as Jamuan Coakley-Thomason, 20, of Roxbury. During their investigation, officers later recovered 24 small plastic bags containing crack cocaine from Coakley-Thomason.

Coakley-Thomason was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, possession of a large-capacity feeding device and possession of Class B drugs with intent to distribute, police say. The two teens were charged with being delinquent for unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and possession of a large-capacity feeding device.

Innocent, etc.
