Man from Maine, three local teens arrested with guns in Roslindale cemetery that has been plagued by gang issues, police say

Boston Police report arresting a man, a 17-year-old and two 15-year-olds they say were roaming Oak Lawn Cemetery in Roslindale with loaded guns Friday evening.

The arrests come almost four months after police arrested four teens they say they found with loaded guns in the cemetery, which in turn happened 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.

Police say gang-unit officers were patrolling the cemetery off Cummins Highway around 7 p.m. on Friday due to a recent 911 call about people with guns in the cemetery when they came across Daishawn Brown, 33, formerly of Roxbury but now of Eliot, ME, and the three teens, too young to have their names released:

As Officers approached the group, one male began to walk away from the group. Officers stopped this male and recovered a loaded firearm from his waistband. The male was taken into custody without further incident.

Simultaneously to the above arrest, officers began speaking with the other members of the group, and following the original investigation, officers recovered another three firearms and arrested Brown, and Two additional juvenile males.

Brown was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, third offense, unlawful possession of a loaded firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, police say. The teens were charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and carrying a loaded firearm, police say.

Brown, then living in Roxbury, was arrested in 2015 on various gun charges, including firing a gun within 500 feet of a residence, on Blue Hill Avenue in Grove Hall.

Innocent, etc.

Surely that grown ass man was leading those poor youths astray. Do we still charge people with Faginism?
