At about 8:26 AM on Monday March 7, 2022, officers assigned to District D-4 (South End) arrested three suspects, including two juveniles, while recovering three loaded firearms after responding to a call for a person with a gun in the area of 53 Windsor Street in Roxbury.
On approach, officers were advised that an adult male victim had been approached by three male suspects as he was walking in the area towards Tremont Street. After a brief verbal exchange, one of the suspects, later identified as a 16-year-old male from Roxbury, pulled out a firearm and threatened the victim. The three suspects then fled the area on foot.
Responding officers were provided with detailed descriptions of the suspects as they began to canvass the area. Following their path of flight, officers soon located the suspects who were quickly stopped after brief simultaneous foot pursuits. Officers then performed pat frisks of the three suspects, leading to the recovery of a loaded 9mm Ruger handgun from the 16-year-old male suspect, as well as a loaded 9mm Springfield Armory XD9 handgun equipped with a laser sight from the second suspect, later identified as a 17-year-old male from Roxbury, and a loaded 9mm Glock 19 handgun from the third suspect, later identified as Jamuan Coakley-Thomason, 20, of Roxbury. During their investigation, officers later recovered 24 small plastic bags containing crack cocaine from Coakley-Thomason.
All three parties were placed in custody on scene without incident.
The two teenage male suspects will appear in Boston Juvenile Court on charges of Delinquent to Wit: Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device. Coakley-Thomason will be charged in Boston Municipal Court Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device and Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B Drugs.
