Boston Police report gang-unit officers arrested four teens Thursday at Oak Lawn Cemetery on Cummins Highway in Roslindale, each packing a gun loaded with at least eight bullets.
Police say the gang unit was staking out the cemetery around 3 p.m. as part of an investigation, three weeks after a 2017 Jamaica Plain murder victim's gravestone was stolen, possibly in a feud involving gangs from the Mildred Hailey and Annunciation developments. Three men were arrested for the theft.
Arrested Wednesday: Demetrey Pate, 18, of Roxbury, Davon Suarez, 18, of Jamaica Plain, D’Khari Wornum-Brown, 18, of Dorchester, and a teen from Brighton too young to have his name released. All were charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm, possession of a large-capacity feeding device and possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number, police say.
Police described their guns:
Firearm #1 was a Glock 48 9mm handgun loaded with thirteen rounds of ammunition in the magazine. Firearm #2 was a Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm handgun loaded with fifteen rounds of ammunition in the magazine and one round in the chamber. Firearm #3 was loaded with fourteen rounds of ammunition in the magazine. Firearm #4 was a Glock 17 9mm handgun with eight rounds of ammunition in the magazine.
