Tyreek Hall, 19, arrested by Boston Police on June 9 for the "ghost" gun and ammo they say he had stuffed in his waistband, now also faces a federal charge that could get him up to ten years in an out-of-state prison.
Hall was among a group of men who decided to beat it when BPD gang-unit officers showed up on Elm Hill Park around 7:25 p.m. that day. According to an affidavit by an FBI agent:
As officers approached 7 Elm Hill Park, one of the black males broke from the group and ran onto a rear porch of 3 Elm Hill Park. Several officers pursued the fleeing male, and additional officers approached the group, which included HALL. An officer walked up to HALL and conducted a pat frisk of his person. Upon frisking the waistline/groin area of HALL, the officer immediately felt an extended magazine protruding from the handle of a firearm. The officer alerted other YSVF officers to the presence of a firearm, which was subsequently removed from HALL's person.
Hall, described by the FBI agent as a member of the H Block Raiders gang, was arraigned the next day in Roxbury Municipal Court on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, possession of a large capacity feeding device and carrying a loaded firearm.
He was also charged as a Level 2 armed career criminal, which could mean a longer state sentence if he's convicted of the other charges - due to his conviction in 2021 in Dorchester court for assault with a dangerous weapon.
Boston Police initially described the loaded gun as having an obliterated serial number. In fact, according to the FBI affidavit, it never had a serial number. The "green and black Glock-style 9x19mm caliber" gun was assembled out of parts, making it a "ghost" gun.
The feds could charge him because the seven bullets in the gun were all made outside Massachusetts.
The federal complaint charges Hall with being a felon in possession of ammunition. At an initial hearing yesterday, he was ordered held pending a probable cause on Oct. 3, the US Attorney's office reports.
