Killed – Rashaan O’Neil (Dorchester, MA)

male

The 36-year-old male fatally shot early Christmas morning in Dorchester has been identified as Rashaan O’Neil. The investigation into his death continues, according to Suffolk Country district attorney’s Daniel Conley’s office .

O’Neil was killed after shots were fired outside a house party at 92 Wales St. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Associated Press reported that the shots were fired after a fight broke out at the party.

Another woman at the party was injured by shattered glass. She was taken to a local hospital in serious condition, police told the Globe.

Prosecutors have charged a Dorchester man they believe to be responsible for a fatal Christmas day shooting after he walked into a police station to retrieve his car, which had been left near the scene of the crime.

At his arraignment in Dorchester Municipal Court on Wednesday, Ian Holness, 27, pleaded innocent to murdering 36-year-old Rashaan O’Neill, of Randolph.

Prosecutors allege that on the night of Dec. 24 Holness and O’Neill separately attended the same concert on Talbot Avenue and an after-party on Wales Street.

In the basement of the house-party, Holness allegedly shot O’Neill in the back of the head, prosecutors said.

A group of women who had been standing near O’Neill when he was shot told police that as they fled the house they were fired at by someone in a dark sedan.

One of the women was hit in the hand and taken to Carney Hospital.

Officers canvasing the area where the women were shot at found spent shell casings and a damaged 2002 Jaguar registered to Holness, prosecutors said.

Inside the car, they found several more shell casings, which were matched to casings inside the Wales Street home.

Stanley Staco reports a man was shot around 4:30 a.m. at a party at 92 Wales St. Boston Police report the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Holness was arrested later Christmas Day when he entered the police station on Blue Hill Avenue to recover his car.

Killed – Romeo McCubbin (Boston, MA)

Romeo McCubbin

Boston police detectives on Thursday arrested a third suspect in last month’s fatal shooting of 25-year-old Romeo McCubbin, the Suffolk district attorney’s office said.

Javaine Watson, 23, pleaded innocent to the murder charge at his arraignment in Dorchester Municipal Court, just hours after his arrest. He was held without bail, said Jake Wark, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office.

Prosecutors allege that Watson and two other men, Omar Bonner, 26, and Omar Denton, 29, shot McCubbin around 1:45 p.m. on Dec. 14. McCubbin was sitting in his car on Havelock Street in Mattapan when he was attacked, Wark said.

Bonner and Denton were arrested shortly after the shooting and are currently being held without bail. Watson is scheduled to return to court Feb. 27.

BOSTON, March 3, 2014—A Hyde Park man was ordered held without bail for the December shooting death of 25-year-old Romeo McCubbin, District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said.

ANDREW “SPOILERS” ROBERTSON (D.O.B. 06/09/1976) was arraigned today in Dorchester District Court on a charge of murder following his arrest Friday by Boston Police.

At the request of Assistant District Attorney Ian Polumbaum, Judge Franco Gobourne ordered Robertson held without bail.

Robertson is the fourth person charged in connection with McCubbin’s shooting death. OMAR BONNER (D.O.B. 8/2/87) of Hyde Park and OMAR DENTON (D.O.B. 5/9/84) of Milton, were arrested shortly after the shooting, and a third co-defendant, JAVAINE WATSON (D.O.B. 10/11/90) of Dorchester, was arrested in January. All are held without bail.

Polumbaum told the court that on Dec. 14 McCubbin attended a Jamaican music festival in Mattapan, as did Robertson and his co-defendants. After leaving the event, McCubbin was sitting in a vehicle on Haverlock Street at about 1:45 a.m. when Robertson approached the driver’s side of the vehicle and shot the victim multiple times, prosecutors said. McCubbin ended up on the sidewalk, where prosecutors said he was shot and kicked in the head by Bonner and Denton.

Robertson then fled the area in a vehicle driven by Watson, which was later found abandoned prosecutors said. Investigators recovered Watson’s cell phone and both defendants’ fingerprints inside the vehicle, prosecutors said.

Double Shooting – Killed – Darryl Dookhran (Boston, MA)

Darryl Dookhran1

When three officers from the Boston Police gang unit saw Darryl Dookhran walking down Geneva Avenue on the afternoon of Dec. 7, 2013, one of them recognized him from a recent intelligence report that said the 20-year-old with the lengthy criminal record may be carrying a gun.

So they pulled up next to Dookhran and his friend Christopher Murrain and asked to talk, according to the officers, Murrain, and witnesses nearby — but Dookhran said nothing, turned, and fled toward Westville Street.

As Officer Ryan Lenane and Sergeant Thomas Teahan chased him, video shows Dookhran turning back and raising a gun in his right hand. Lenane told investigators later that he heard a gunshot and felt something hit his left arm.

Two other cameras capture the men seconds later: Teahan and then Lenane round the corner behind Dookhran, who again twists to raise his gun. Dookhran shot again, according to police documents, and both officers shot back, hitting Dookhran in the head and the arm, and killing him.

On Tuesday, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley concluded that Lenane and Teahan acted to defend themselves and others when they shot Dookhran.

The injured officer survived.

Officials said they had been investigating two individuals known to police near Geneva Avenue and Westville Street at about 1 p.m. when one of the suspects turned and pushed an officer.

BOSTON, Jan. 20, 2015—The Boston Police officers who returned fire against the man who had just shot one of them will not face criminal charges in connection with the man’s death, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley determined today.

Conley today met with the family of DARRYL DOOKHRAN (D.O.B. 1/17/93) to detail his findings that the two officers acted in self-defense and defense of others when they shot Dookhran, killing him, after Dookhran initiated a gunfight and shot one of them in the area of Geneva Avenue and Westville Street on Dec. 7, 2013. The determination came after an exhaustive and independent review of surveillance imagery from the area, tape-recorded statements of the officers involved and six civilian witnesses, reports on field interviews with more than 100 additional civilians, medical records, ballistics testing, and other evidence that will be made available to Dookhran’s family and any media who wish to inspect it. The meeting was initially scheduled for late last year but was rescheduled for today at the family’s request.

Also today, Conley will join community leaders and stakeholders including clergy members, youth service providers, street workers, civil liberties advocates, and others to explain the facts of the incident, the legal principles at issue, the process of investigating police-involved fatalities in Boston and Suffolk County, and the unparalleled policy of transparency the DA adopted in such cases more than a decade ago.

Conley also notified Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans of his decision in a four-page letter detailing the results of his investigation and his legal analysis. Conley’s office investigated the incident under Ch. 38, Sect. 4, of the Massachusetts General Laws, which establishes that, in “cases of unnatural or suspicious death,” including police-involved deaths, “the district attorney or his law enforcement representative shall direct and control the investigation of the death and shall coordinate the investigation with the office of the chief medical examiner and the police department within whose jurisdiction the death occurred.” The letter is online at http://www.suffolkdistrictattorney.com/das-letter-on-the-dec-7-2013-police-involved-shooting-of-darryl-dookhran/.

“The investigation revealed that Boston Police Officer Ryan Lenane and Sergeant Thomas Teahan … fired on Mr. Dookhran only after he shot Officer Lenane in the left arm,” Conley wrote. “Mr. Dookhran then engaged Sergeant Teahan and Officers Lenane and William Traft (who did not fire his weapon) in an exchange of gunfire in a thickly-settled residential and commercial neighborhood. Under the circumstances, Sergeant Teahan and Officer Lenane acted reasonably and lawfully when they discharged their service weapons. Therefore, based on a thorough investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding Mr. Dookhran’s death, I conclude that there is no evidence of criminal conduct by the officers involved.”

More specifically, the investigation showed that Lenane, Teahan, and Traft had been assigned to search for a firearm that Boston Police believed had been discarded in the area after a shooting the night before. While en route to their Ridgewood Street destination in an unmarked cruiser, Traft spotted Dookhran and another man walking on Geneva Avenue, and recognized him from a recent bulletin from the Boston Regional Intelligence Center indicating that he was affiliated with a gang based on Favre Street and was believed to carry a firearm.

In light of the bulletin and their familiarity with Dookhran, the officers pulled up to speak with him. Lenane first addressed Dookhran through the open window of the cruiser, asking if the officers could speak with him. Dookhran did not respond. When Lenane and Teahan opened their doors, Dookhran immediately began to run up Geneva Avenue. Lenane and Teahan gave chase on foot. Traft, who had remained in the cruiser to use its mobile data terminal, exited the cruiser to join them. All of their service weapons were holstered.

The man who had been walking with Dookhran – later identified as CHRISTOPHER MURRAIN (D.O.B. 7/9/87) – stepped into Lenane’s path and shoulder-checked him to block him from pursuit. Murrain later pleaded guilty to assault and battery on a police officer in Dorchester Municipal Court and received a two-year house of correction sentence with six months deemed served and the balance suspended for two years.

As Dookhran ran, the evidence showed, he turned and fired a .380 caliber Ruger LCP semiautomatic handgun at the officers, hitting Lenane in the left arm. He turned right onto Westville Street and continued running with the three officers in pursuit and returning fire with their service weapons, which they had now removed from their holsters.

Dookhran turned and fired again at the officers, this time missing them. Lenane and Teahan also fired. Dookhran was struck in the left upper arm and head. The officers immediately called for an ambulance. Paramedics pronounced Dookhran dead at the scene. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner determined that the fatal injury was a gunshot wound to the head that travelled generally upward from the front right to back left. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner also recovered a bag containing five .380 caliber rounds from Dookhran’s clothing.

“The facts establish that Officers Lenane and Traft and Sergeant Teahan, in the lawful discharge of their duties, found themselves confronted by an armed gunman who had shot Officer Lenane without provocation and continued to fire as he fled down a thickly settled residential street,” Conley wrote to Evans. “Fearing that Mr. Dookhran would continue to fire at the officers – and possibly hit an innocent bystander – Officer Lenane and Sergeant Teahan fired at him. The officers’ decisions to open fire under these circumstances constitute a lawful and reasonable exercise of self-defense and the defense of others.”

The 1989 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Graham v. Connor explained that “the calculus of reasonableness must embody allowance for the fact that police officers are often forced to make split-second judgments – in circumstances that are tense, uncertain, and rapidly evolving – about the amount of force that is necessary in a particular situation.” But Suffolk prosecutors noted that the right to self-defense is not limited to law enforcement officials: they have declined to charge five homicides in the past eight years because the civilians involved used lethal force reasonably and lawfully to protect themselves against the threat of death or serious bodily injury.

As with all police-involved fatalities, Conley announced that he would make a copy of prosecutors’ complete investigative file available to the Dookhran family and open it to scrutiny by any Boston media outlet that wishes to inspect it, a voluntary policy he put in place more than 10 years ago to ensure complete transparency in the investigation of police-involved fatalities.

Killed – Juan Lopez (Framingham, MA)

Juan Lopez

Framingham police received reports of the shooting at a parking lot on Second Street at 10:57 p.m. on Nov. 20. When they arrived, officers found Lopez in the driver’s seat of a car, suffering from a gunshot wound to his chest.

Lopez was transported to MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham, where he was pronounced dead.

A Framingham man authorities said fled the state after he killed a Framingham man in November has been arrested in Philadelphia, authorities said.

Jeremy Rodriguez, 19, was arrested Tuesday by Philadelphia police after Framingham police received a tip that Rodriguez was possibly in the city.

Rodriguez is being held without bail. He is due in Philadelphia Municipal Court on Feb. 18 for a rendition hearing.

Authorities say Rodriguez, along with Jose Cruz, 16, of Framingham, and Bryan Petarb, 20, lured Juan Lopez, 20, to a parking lot at 15 Second St., on Nov. 20 for a drug deal. The trio had planned to rob Lopez instead, and when he arrived, Rodriguez shot and killed Lopez.

Both Cruz and Petarb had previously been arrested. They are being held without bail after their Framingham District Court arraignments.

Cruz, Petarb and Rodriguez have all been indicted by a Middlesex grand jury. They are charged with murder, attempted armed robbery, armed assault with the intent to rob, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Killed – Eliezer Rivera (Worcester, MA)

male

WORCESTER— Police here continue to investigate a Friday shooting that killed 30-year-old Eliezer Rivera of Worcester.

Worcester police have identified a suspect in the homicide and have secured a warrant for his arrest, though they believe he may have fled the country.

Rivera was shot inside the Fadeaway Barbershop, 42 Chandler St., shortly before 6 p.m. Friday. According to witnesses, Rivera was in the barbershop when a man entered and started arguing with him. The verbal dispute became physical and the suspect allegedly pulled a handgun and shot Rivera in the chest, police said.

Rivera was taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital by private car, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Accompanied by his lawyer, the suspect in Sunday’s shooting on Mechanic Street in Southbridge turned himself in at Dudley District Court today.

Miguel E. Rivera, 19, of 278 Mechanic St., Apt. 3, Southbridge, was ordered held on $50,000 bail. He returns to court March 8 for a pretrial hearing.

Police had obtained a warrant to charge Mr. Rivera with armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, carrying a firearm without a license, possession of ammunition without a license and committing a firearm violation with a prior conviction of a drug offense.

In February 2007, Mr. Rivera was convicted in Dudley District Court of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

Mr. Rivera and the 29-year-old victim, Eliezer Rivera, argued about a stolen ATV, a police report said.

The corner of Quincy and Stebbins streets, the area where 33-year-old Hakeem M. Powell was shot dead around 2:15 p.m. Saturday, lies near the heart of a several-block area just south of State Street where drugs and shootings have become commonplace.

Killed – Jeffrey P Watts (East Bridgewater, MA)

male

Police shot and killed an armed robbery suspect who fired on them during a wild pursuit through three cities and towns in the Brockton area on Monday, ending in a final confrontation on a quiet street here, officials said.

Jeffrey P. Watts, 47, of Brockton, robbed a CVS store at 355 Centre St. in Brockton at around noon and fled in a black Dodge pickup, according to law enforcement officials and the company.

State and Brockton police pursued Watts through Brockton, Whitman, and East Bridgewater, according to David Procopio, a State Police spokesman. Watts was shot at about 12:30 p.m. after firing at police with a shotgun, officials said.

“During the pursuit the suspect fired at officers,” Procopio said in an e-mail. “The pursuit ended on Thatcher Street in East Bridgewater . . . with more shots fired. The suspect was struck by gunfire” and later pronounced dead at Brockton Hospital, he said.

Brockton police Lieutenant Mark Porcaro said an officer from his department was struck in the chest by some kind of object during the pursuit, but he was unsure what that was. The officer was treated and released at an area hospital as a precaution, Porcaro said.

Triple Shooting – Killed – Adriana Bonet (Springfield, MA)

The incident follows a triple shooting on Armory Street early Saturday morning. Law enforcement officials say a female victim, whose name has not been made available, died from her injuries.

In that shooting, police said three people, two men and one woman, were standing in the parking lot of MJ’s Pizza at around 2:30 a.m. when someone opened fire from Worthington Street.

Springfield Police Det. Lt. Trent Hufnagel said Adriana Bonet, 25, of Leyfred Terr. in Springfield, died shortly after coming out of surgery at the Baystate Medical Center Trauma Unit. She had been shot once in the torso when a male assailant opened fire on Bonet, Jonathan Rosario, 24, of Bay Street and 19-year-old Jaton Pearson, of Windsor Street.

According to police, Bonet, Rosario and Pearson were standing in a parking lot next to the restaurant, when words were exchanged with another group of people. Witnesses said that a short time later a group of three men, all dressed in red, gathered on the sidewalk along Armory Street about 35 feet from the others. One of the three opened fire, spraying the group in the parking lot with nearly a dozen shots. Bonet was hit by a bullet in the torso just below her left arm, while Rosario was hit in the back. He is currently listed in stable condition following surgery.

Pearson did not present as a victim at the scene, but later walked into the hospital emergency room seeking help. He had been grazed by a bullet on his back in the shooting. He was treated and later released.

Killed – Jody Hargrove (Boston, MA)

male

nvestigators are continuing to search for the killer of Jody Hargrove, a 43-year-old Dorchester man who was shot shortly before 10 p.m. on Sept. 7, 2013 on Blue Hill Avenue in Dorchester, according to a spokesman for the Suffolk County district attorney’s office.

Hargrove’s mother told The Boston Globe that Hargrove had a 10-year-old daughter:

Betty said Tuesday that her son leaves a 10-year-old daughter and that he had been laid off from his construction job at the time of his death. She said he enjoyed exercising at a gym and spending time with relatives.

“He loved his family,” she said.

Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said two later non-fatal shootings in Roxbury seemed related to Hargrove’s funeral, which was held one week after his death, according to The Globe.

In January of 2006, Boston police reported that Hargrove led officers on a car chase before he was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and a number of motor vehicle violations.

Killed – Denis Reynoso (Lynn, MA)

Denis Reynoso

LYNN — Police fatally shot a military veteran at an apartment complex Thursday after the man reached for an officer’s gun during a struggle, according to officials and neighbors.

The Essex district attorney’s office identified the man as Denis Reynoso, 30, of Lynn. Family members of the man could not be reached for comment following the shooting.

Lynn Police Lieutenant Richard Donnelly said officers were called to 115 O’Callaghan Way in the King’s Lynne apartment complex, about 11:10 a.m. for a disturbance and were told that a man was screaming outside. They were then directed to Newcastle Street, which is also in the development.

Officers tried to speak to Reynoso there, but he grabbed for one of their guns and “shots were fired,” Donnelly said.

Earlier this month, the Essex County District Attorney’s Office provided The Bay State Examiner with a number of records related to the fatal police shooting of Denis Reynoso. The records offer a rare look at how police shootings are investigated in Massachusetts and raise new questions about the Reynoso shooting.

The records provided by the district attorney’s office show that Bernard and Scali provided different, contradictory accounts of how they entered Reynoso’s home.

Bernard claimed that Reynoso walked away from them, into the house, and they simply followed him in. “He kinda just turned away from me. He kinda walked away,” Bernard said during his interview. Later in the interview, O’Toole asked if Reynoso tried to close the door on Bernard and Scali. “No, he touched it and then just walked away. He didn’t close it. I didn’t force it open,” Bernard replied.

Scali said that Reynoso tried to slam the door and Bernard used his foot to kick it open. “He [i.e., Reynoso] grabs the door. He swings it out, goes to rip it shut, and John [Bernard] kicks it as it’s – as he tries to shut it. And it – and the door just flies open,” Scali said.

Scali’s version of the story was backed up by several other witnesses. In fact, an officer who spoke to Bernard shortly after the shooting said Bernard gave him an account similar to the one Scali provided during his interview. “[A] male party opened the door and yelled to them your [sic] not coming in here and went and slammed the door. Officer Bernard fearing for the safety of the child was able to stop the door from shutting and entered the apartment,” Sergeant T. Hallisey wrote, paraphrasing Bernard. Another witness reportedly told Detective T. Ferrari that “Reynoso tried to close the door but the officer kicked it so it didn’t slam in his face.”

The investigators who interviewed the officers never asked either of them about their contradictory statements. The district attorney’s report does not acknowledge that there was any disagreement about how they entered Reynoso’s home. The report merely states that one witness, a postal worker, “observed Officers Bernard and Scali follow Reynoso into the house.”

During the interview, Bernard also said the magazine was removed from his gun at some point during the struggle with Reynoso, which means it’s not clear if Reynoso could have fired another bullet from the gun at the time he was shot. Bernard did not mention that the magazine was removed from his gun until he was asked about it. Bernard said he put the magazine back into the gun before it was taken to be analyzed.

The fact that the magazine was removed was never mentioned in the district attorney’s report. In fact, the report states that Bernard thought he was going to be killed because he knew the gun still had 13 rounds in it when Reynoso was shot.

It is still unclear if Reynoso even fired a weapon at all because the gunshot residue test that was conducted for the investigation came back negative. In his report, the district attorney cited an anonymous “forensic scientist” who speculated that “when Reynoso was prepped for surgery, the cleansing might have removed the residue, and testing was done after 4 hours elapsed and is considered unreliable at that point.” The gunshot residue report does not make any mention of the residue possibly being washed off or of the test results being unreliable. It merely states that the tests came back negative and thus “no conclusions can be made.”

The district attorney did not provide us with recordings of 9-1-1 calls and police radio transmissions related to the Reynoso shooting. These recordings were not mentioned in the district attorney’s response to our public records request, so we have asked for them again.

BOSTON — The Essex District Attorney’s office has concluded that Lynn police officers acted appropriately in the fatal 2013 shooting death of Denis Reynoso.

Lynn police officers fatally shot and killed Reynoso, an Iraq War veteran reportedly suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, on September 5, 2013 while responding to a call of man screaming and yelling at the Kings Lynne apartment complex.

According to the DA’s report, police officers found a shirtless and hysterical Reynoso in an apartment at 46 Newcastle Street in Lynn.

Police attempted to speak with Reynoso before he lunged at two officers from a seated position atop a couch and a struggled ensued. During the struggle Reynoso got a hold of Officer John Bernarder’s service weapon and held it to the officer’s head. Bernarder managed to aim the gun away from his head before Reynoso fired his first shot. Officer Paul Scali then came to Bernarder’s aid and grabbed the gun as Reynoso fired again. According to the report, Officer Scali was deafened by the blast so close to his head.

The report states that a third officer, Officer Joshua Hilton, entered the apartment and shot Reynoso. To warn Reynoso and to alert Officer Bernard, he yelled at least five times, “I am going to shoot him.”

The report further states that Reynoso continued to laugh and scream after having been shot, and was struggling and attempting to bite paramedics that responded to transport him to a hospital.

Reynoso, 29 and a father of two, later died at Lynn Union Hospital from his gunshot wound.

The report concluded that the Lynn police officers were in immediate danger of being shot and that their use of force was justified.

Killed – Scott Kehoe (Danvers, MA)

male

A 37-year-old Danvers man was fatally shot by police Thursday night in the Avalon Danvers complex on the site of the former Danvers state hospital, officials said today.

Scott Kehoe was armed with a knife and lunged toward an officer during a confrontation. At that point, officers “deployed lethal force,” according to preliminary investigation, Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett’s office said in a statement.

Kehoe was transported to Beverly Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, prosecutors said.

A 37-year-old Danvers man was fatally shot by police Thursday night in the Avalon Danvers complex on the site of the former Danvers state hospital, officials said today.

Danvers Police Chief Neil F. Ouellette said his officers were dispatched to the 5000 block of Kirkbride Drive in Danvers to investigate an alleged assault around 9:52 p.m.

“The ensuing investigation indicated that a robbery had occurred and, as officers were attempting to place the suspect into custody for that, as well as existing trial court warrants, an officer-involved shooting occurred,’’ Ouellette said in a statement. “The suspect was shot.”

Killed – Keny Sien (Lowell, MA)

Keny Sien1

LOWELL — A fight between a few individuals quickly grew into a melee on Middlesex Street early Sunday morning that left a Dracut man dead from gunshot wounds and another man in critical condition with stab wounds.

That deadly fight was one of several violent incidents around the city Saturday night and Sunday, leaving one dead, another man shot, three men suffering from stab wounds, and at least two homes struck by gunfire.

A witness who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the fight broke out a little before 2 a.m., in front of the Crown nightclub at 74 Middlesex St.

“Several guys were hitting this one guy and then everyone came out and started fighting,” the witness said.

That man said he called 911 to report the fight, but he never heard or saw any gunshots fired as the fight moved down Middlesex Street toward the Lord Overpass.

Police soon arrived and found 25-year-old Keny Sien, of Dracut, suffering from gunshot wounds that would later claim his life.

A MedFlight helicopter landed at Cawley Stadium to fly Sien to a Boston trauma center, but medical crews were unable to stabilize him enough for the flight. Sien was pronounced dead at Lowell General Hospital/Saints Campus about 7:30 a.m.

Killed – Wayne Edwards (Chicopee, MA)

Wayne Edwards1

CHICOPEE, Mass. (AP) — State police say the man fatally shot by a trooper during a traffic stop in Chicopee has been identified as 23-year-old Wayne Edwards II.

The trooper noticed the car speeding on Interstate 91 south at about 12:20 a.m. Sunday.
Police say Edwards became combative after the trooper asked for his license and registration and got into “physical altercation” with the trooper. The officer then fired his weapon, striking the man, who drove away before striking a barrier. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police said they found two guns in Edwards’ car. Both had obliterated serial numbers.
Police did not release the name of the trooper who shot Edwards or the name of his 22 year-old female passenger, who was not hurt.

Investigators determined that a state trooper who shot and killed a motorist in Chicopee last year was justified in using deadly force. Trooper Thiago Miranda shot Wayne Edwards, 23, of Springfield twice after pulling him over for speeding on Interstate 291 in August. The Hampden district attorney’s office said Edwards resisted arrest and struggled. The trooper opened fire after Edwards put his vehicle into drive and started to pull away with the trooper halfway out of the vehicle. The report said Miranda ‘‘feared he would be seriously injured or killed.’’

Triple Shooting – Wounded – Police Officer (Boston, MA)

male

BOSTON (CBS) – A gun battle on the streets of Dorchester left one suspect dead and two veteran Boston police officers injured with gunshot wounds. Police are still searching for a second suspect involved in the incident.

The shooting happened around 1:45 p.m. near Dorchester Avenue and Shepton Street. The plainclothes narcotics officers witnessed two men “acting in a suspicious manner” and then got out of their vehicle and identified themselves, according to Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis.

The two men then allegedly reached into their clothing and at least one pulled out a gun and fired at the officers. The officers then returned fire. The injured officers have been identified as Harry Jean and Terry Cotton, both 24-year veterans of the Boston Police Department.

Commissioner Davis says the officers both suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds to the legs.

The suspect who was shot and killed has been identified as 21-year-old Roudy Hendricks of Brockton. The second suspect is described as a light-skinned black male, with a slim build, wearing a maroon shirt with stripes and braided hair.

Police say the officers had minor leg wounds. A second suspect is being sought for questioning by police.

Police Superintendent-in-Chief Daniel Linsky said the two plain-clothes drug unit officers were near Dorchester Avenue and Shepton Street at about 1:45 p.m. Wednesday when they got out of their car to confront two people.

A man with a 5-page criminal history that dates to 1985 and includes violent assaults, drug charges and breaking and entering, is being held on $300,000 bail on charges he attempted to kill a Middleboro police officer.

Authorities say within 3-weeks of getting out of jail, 52-year-old Thomas Buttimer was gunned down by Middleboro Det. Sgt. Joseph Perkins as 65-year-old Norma DesRoche lay dying in a pool of blood.

Witnesses say Buttimer went berserk on July 12 and taking a commando style stance prepared to shoot Det. Sgt. Joseph Perkins.  Assistant District Attorney Jessica Healy said Buttimer trained his rifle on Perkins and refused to drop the weapon.

Details emerging from the investigation indicate Norma DesRoche wanted out of her marriage and was fed up with her boarders.  The day she was killed she left a note telling the borders, -her brother-in law Joseph DesRoche and Buttimer- to move out.

According to court records Norma DesRoche intended to spend the night at her daughter’s Lakeville home, but changed her mind and returned to her house in Middleboro.

Joseph DesRoche and the victim’s husband John DesRoche told investigators they went to bed after 4-wheeling, playing video games and eating a chicken BBQ.  Buttimer settled down to watch a re-runs of a Bruins game.  The DesRoches say they were in bed and woke to find Norma DesRoche bleeding to death on the floor.

MIDDLEBOROUGH — Police responding to the fatal shooting of a woman early Friday shot a man who had been living in her home after he allegedly pointed a rifle at the officers, authorities said.

Paramedics and police arrived at 174 Highland Street at 12:03 a.m., and found Norma DesRoche, 65, lying in the driveway and suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest, with her husband and an unidentified person huddled over her giving her CPR.

Tyshianna Atkins

SPRINGFIELD — A 22-year-old city man accused in a fatal shooting at a Federal Street apartment Thursday – described by police as an incident of domestic violence – denied murder and other charges at his arraignment in Hampden Superior Court Friday.

Terrance Brown, 22, of 10 Chestnut St., was arrested shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday and charged with murder in the shooting death of his girlfriend, 19-year-old Worthington Street resident Tyshianna J. Atkins.

In addition to the single count of murder, Brown also faces charges of carrying a firearm without a license and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling. A first-degree murder conviction in Massachusetts carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole.

Double Shooting – Killed – Joseph Puopolo (Stoneham, MA)

Joseph Puopolo1

STONEHAM (CBS) – Two men were arrested Sunday on murder charges in connection with a Stoneham double shooting that killed one man and injured another, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Stoneham Police Chief James McIntyre said in a prepared statement.

Jessie Williams, 24, of Medford, and Eugene Tate, 19, of Malden, were arrested Sunday and charged with murder, armed assault with intent to murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, armed robbery, and illegal possession of a firearm.

Williams and Tate face arraignment Monday in Woburn District Court.

According to authorities, at about 12:19 a.m. on Wednesday, Stoneham Police were dispatched to a home at 6 Micah’s Pond Way in Stoneham for a report of gunshots.
When officers arrived, they found two men suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. One of those men, Joseph Puopolo, 27, was found suffering from gunshot wounds to the chest and wrist. He was taken to Leahy Clinic, where he was pronounced deceased. The second victim, a 28-year-old man, suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

An investigation by Stoneham Police and Massachusetts State Police assigned to the DA’s office revealed that the 28-year-old victim arranged to sell drugs to Williams and Tate through known associates. It is alleged that prior to arrival of the pair, the 28-year-old victim asked Puopolo to come to the home because he was concerned the proposed deal may be a drug rip-off.

It is alleged that Williams and Tate entered the home shortly after midnight to complete a drug deal. When they entered the home, the two defendants allegedly drew handguns, demanded drugs and money, then shot Puopolo and the 28-year-old victim, Ryan and McIntyre said.

Ana Cruz

Left: Ana Cruz; Right: Felix Garcia

The party in the Roxbury apartment complex had been going on for several hours when at least one gunman walked through the door and began firing, according to two law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation.

Two men and a woman, all in their 20s, were killed Saturday morning at the party on Intervale Street, in a section of the city that police consider a hot spot for violent crime and gang activity.

Police identified the victims as Ana Cruz, 22, Felix Garcia, 22, and Brian Tirado, 23. All three lived in Dorchester.

By 4:18 a.m., Cruz, 22; Garcia, 20; and Brian Tirado, 23 were fatally shot inside the apartment, police said. It was the second triple homicide in the city since last August, when three women were fatally shot as they sat in a car on Harlem Street in Dorchester, a crime that has not yet been solved.

Killed – Odin L. Lloyd (North Attleboro, MA)

Odin L. Lloyd

FALL RIVER, Mass. — Aaron Hernandez, the former star tight end for the New England Patriots, was indicted on Thursday for first-degree murder in the execution-style slaying of Odin L. Lloyd in an industrial pit near the football player’s million-dollar home in North Attleboro.

A Bristol County (Mass.) grand jury that has been investigating Lloyd’s murder since Hernandez’s arrest on June 26, handed up the six-count indictment in Fall River Superior Court. In addition to the murder charge, Hernandez faces five weapons charges.
Hernandez, 23, has been held without bail at the Bristol County House of Correction in North Dartmouth, Mass. for the past two months. It is unclear when he will be brought to court in Fall River to be arraigned on the murder charge. Once that is done, prosecutors and defense lawyers will begin preparing for a trial that could take place sometime next year.
The indictment canceled a probable cause hearing that was set for Hernandez this afternoon in Attleboro District Court. Nonetheless, he boarded a van from the county jail at 12:30 p.m. and headed to Attleboro.

The future that Odin Lloyd dreamily talked about lasted less than 10 hours. At roughly 3:30 a.m. on June 17, Lloyd was shot five times in the chest and back. Aaron Hernandez is now sitting in the Bristol County (Mass.) House of Corrections, charged with first-degree murder and five gun-related offenses. He is being held without bail.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Mitchell Stevenson (Swansea, MA)

male

SWANSEA, Mass. (AP) — A man killed someone who had come to his home to collect a debt on Sunday night, then went inside his house and took his own life, a dispute the victim’s brother ascribed to a car restoration project.

Police responded to a home in Swansea at about 6 p.m. Sunday after neighbors reported hearing gunfire, according to a statement from Bristol District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter’s office.

When they arrived, officers found Mitchell Stevenson, 37, of Tiverton, R.I., dead inside a car.
The shooter then went into his home, and almost immediately another gunshot was heard.
Local and state police secured the area, and several hours later entered the home to find Christian Wilson, 43, dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound. No one else was inside the house.

The two men knew each other and Stevenson drove to Wilson’s home to collect money, authorities said.
