Boston Police report arresting two 16-year-olds and a 17-year-old they say were each packing loaded guns - two with laser sights - at 38 Crestwood Park in Roxbury shortly before 10 p.m. on Wednesday.
Police say officers on patrol spotted four guys walking near them - one "pinning his arm against his body."
Officers attempted to speak with the group, and one of the males attempted to walk away from the area.
Officers conducted a pat frisk of one of the suspects, and recovered a loaded firearm from his hooded sweatshirt pocket. Officers immediately detained the rest of the group, and observed the male walking away, ducking behind a motor vehicle. Officers were able to place the fleeing suspect into handcuffs, and observed a discarded firearm from behind the vehicle.
With the assistance of more responding officers, pat frisks were conducted on the remaining two suspects and recovered a loaded firearm from one of their waistbands. The other juvenile was promptly released.
The three firearms that were recovered were a Smith and Wesson M&P Shield with one round in the chamber and seven rounds in the magazine, a Taurus G2C equipped with a laser sight with one round in the chamber and fourteen rounds in the magazine, and the third firearm was a Taurus G3 equipped with a laser sight with one round in the chamber and fourteen rounds in the magazine.
The three teens, too young to have their names released, were charged with being delinquent for illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition. Two were charged with being delinquent for possession of a large-capacity feeding device, police say.
