Alleged H-Block gang member now faces federal charge for the loaded 'ghost' gun police say they found on him

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.

Innocent, etc.

"The feds could charge him because the seven bullets in the gun were all made outside Massachusetts."

Never underestimate the scope and range of the Interstate Commerce Clause in allowing the feds to go after you.

I find it interesting that criminals seem to have an easier time getting guns than holsters
